In 1963-1964 Toshi Yoshida produced a group of landscape prints depicting both famous and unidentified gardens utilizing a 'white outline' format in a limited palette that made much use of the lightness and texture of the paper. Although not identified, this composition depicts the dry landscape garden at the late 15th century Zen Buddhist temple Ryoan-ji located in Kyoto.
