Print, HAKU MAKI A vintage 1960s sosaku hanga modernist woodblock print by Haku Maki. The entire surface of the figure is embossed. It is titled "Figure 6". It is numbered in pencil, 20 of 34 (or 54 or 74, it is hard to tell). Red seal lower left on background. Pencil signed "Haku Maki". Image size is 12-1/2" x 18". Sheet size is 13-5/8" x 19-1/2". Condition is good with no glaring problems. No tears, no surface scratching, no creases. There is a border of light toning about 1/8" wide that borders the black background, which was the exposed margin in the original matting. There are some small spots of foxing along the margin and on the raised white portions of the image (where there is no pigment present). The worst of this is shown. There is tape residue on the back side of each corner. All in all, it is immediately presentable as it is, but it would be pristine after a professional cleaning.
