- Gion Shirakawa, Kyoto -

Masao Ido


The beautiful woodblock print 'Gion Shirakawa, Kyoto' is by Masao Ido (1945–2016). This print is part of the twelve-month Kyoto series. This smaller-format print has a printed title and signature. This print captures the serene street of Gion Shirakawa in June, after the bustling cherry blossom season has passed. The delicate hydrangeas, glistening after a light rain, create a peaceful and enchanting image. It comes with an original presentation folder and the artist's comment for this print (only in Japanese).
