"76-22" (Flavour-B)

Haku Maki


Heavily embossed woodblock print "76-22" (Flavour-B) by HAKU MAKI (1924-2000). Extremely large size. A very large and long print with dynamic embossed symbols on a textured background. Titled, sheet numbered "22/151", hand-signed in pencil by the artist. Artist red seal "Maki Haku" on the lower right corner of the image. It is extremely hard to find Maki's large size print like this. I try to show details of this print as possible as I can, however, it was hard to photograph. Please feel free to ask me more additional pictures, if you need.

Technique: Woodblock
Paper size: 17 and 1/4 x 33 inches
Sheet number: 22/151
Date: 1980
Signed: Hand signed in pencil by artist
Condition: This print is in overall good condition for its age with noticeable mat burn and tiny foxing in the margins which will be most likely matted out. Unfortunately, there is small foxing in the image also as shown. If you know somebody who is the trustful and skillful conservator, he should be able to remove this foxing. Or you just framed and enjoy it. All foxing are hard to see from distance. When framed, this print will be very nice looking. Maki used a lot of water in order to get the deep embossing on some of his prints. So foxing into his print is very typical and common.
