Masao Ido (1945-), 'Spring at Yasaka Pagoda' Japanese Woodblock Print, Hanga Style
Masao Ido was born in North-East China in 1945 then moved to Japan in 1946 where he has lived ever since. He studied in Kyoto with Yoshida, Koho and Otsubo Shigechika and by 1984 was a Teacher of Seiji Sano. Masao Ido is one of the most highly regarded of contemporary woodblock artists and has worked in many museums, including the New York Modern Art Museum, the Boston Art Museum, the Kyoto and Tokyo National Museum and the Florence Municipal Museum. He has an extremely individual form of expression and an amazing skill with perspective and form.
This original woodblock print was produced c1970. It has marvelous springtime colors, with great definition. It is unframed, a small format print measuring 5.75" high by 7.75" wide. This print is in superb original condition. It bears Masao Ido's cipher in the lower right corner. Ido's name is noted on the backside, however, we have no idea if it was actually in his hand.
