This is a mixed color intaglio print titled "Withered Tree" by Japanese artist Masao Yoshida. Yoshida was born in Japan in 1934. In 1956 he won the Nika-kai Prize for New Talent and the Nika Prize in 1957 and 1960. Soon after, he left Japan for Europe and worked in Paris at Stanley William Hayter's Atelier 17 between 1961 and 1963. This is where he studied intaglio printing. He has exhibited with the Atelier in New York, Copenhagen, Rome, and Tokyo. The print depicts a deconstructed tree whose trunk and foliage make up two distinct parts. The trunk is filled with one large organic, curvilinear shape with multiple layers, each mimicking the original shape. The foliage is made up of separate free form shapes, each with their own unique shapes inside them. The main colors Yoshida used are variations of green and beige. The artist signed and dated the piece at the lower right corner. The print is in excellent condition for its age as there is no damage of any kind. The paper on the back of the frame has some tears and the edges of the frame has some chipping. The print measures approximately 17.75" tall by 12.5" wide. The frame itself measures 29" tall and 22.5" wide.
