Artist's Description

9″×11″ ink & pencil on sketchbook paper inspired by the haiku Nightingale song
by
Basho

“Moonlight slanting through
The shadowy bamboo grove
Sweet nightingale song”

Matsuo Basho was the most famous poet of the Edo period in Japan. During his lifetime, Bashō was recognized for his works in the collaborative haikai no renga form; today, after centuries of commentary, he is recognized as a master of brief and clear haiku. His poetry is internationally renowned, and within Japan many of his poems are reproduced on monuments and traditional sites.
