Vintage 1950s HIYOSHI MAMORU Japanese Woodblock Print "Koreans Washing Clothes" , paper size is 16" x 11-1/2", see photos. I have 2 prints by this artist depicting Korean life, see my other listings. Hiyoshi Mamoru was born in Tokyo and graduated from the Tokyo School of Fine Arts. He was a woodblock print artist and painter although it is his 1950’s woodblock prints that he is known for. In the early 1950's, he designed brightly colored woodblock prints of Korean people and their customs (this print included). Publisher seal in the right margin. The print is signed "M. Hiyoshi" and has the stylized Mamoru seal and Shinagawa seal at the lower left of the image.
