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. The garden at the Zen Buddhist temple Tenryuji in the Arashiyama district in Kyoto was created in the 14th century by it's first head priest, Muso Soseki (1275-1351), who was also a calligrapher, poet, and garden designer.
