Masao Ido


Marvelous woodblock print "Shinobu Mochizuri" (Autumn at Shinobu Mochizuri, Fukushima) is by Masao Ido (1945-2016).  Remarkable autumn image. The moss-covered "Mochizuri stone" is surrounded by colored leaves. 

Shinobu Mochizuri has been a popular muse for many Japanese poets including Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) who traveled through on his Narrow Road to the Deep North. The name "Mochizuri" comes from the elegant patterns of Shinobu Mochizuri silk that were made in this area. The Mochizuri Stone tells of the unrequited love of Minamoto no Toru (822-895), a famous poet who mentions "Shinobu Mochizuri"  in his poetry.
