Pear - Ito  Wako

Pear

Mezzotint  
10 x 10.75 in

Description: Wako ITO has a special love for fruit and flowers. Here a single pear, with leaves still attached, appears to have been just picked, on ground that may be earth or field. The Print has a spontaneous quality with very good use of light and shade; the ripe fruit, lusciously rounded, is set off by the tangle of stems and leaves that surround it as if with a light and caring touch. Wako Ito works in the mezzotint medium which she has developed masterfully.

Edition: 16/20

Condition: very good, slight tape remains ripe fruit, lusciously rounded, is set off by the tangle of stems and leaves that surround it as if with a light and caring touch.

Signed: in pencil: Wako Ito
