Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950)
oil on board painting, framed, signed H. Yoshida with the title (faintly) below, Tyringham 1905
11 3/4 by 17 7/8 in., 30 by 45.3 cm (sight)
This painting, Tyringham, depicts the figure of a woman obscured by shadows standing on a pathway beside a building which appears to be a residence. The soft shadows cast across the pale walls suggest a moonlit evening. Here also the darkness is broken by light emanating from within the structure which draws our attention towards the warm glow but also emphasizes the solitary figure in the foreground who is shut out from the comforts within.
