Haku Maki Rare Lg VTG Japanese Modernist Woodcut Print Embossed Persimmon Signed

The artist name is actually Maejima Tadaaki, he used Haku Maki as his name on his art pieces. This piece is a very desirable work for Haku Maki. This is from his Persimmon series, some of his most desirable, which he made from 1971 to 1981.

This is I believe the largest piece of the series, most are much smaller. It is full sheet 12 9/16" by 18 3/8" and the image is 10 7/8" by 16 3/4". This piece is pencil signed in lower right margin, has 81-31 in center margin, which is the date 81 and the 31st piece of the series.

It has the edition of 20/190 in the left margin. Also has his red seal in the lower right. CONDITION: very good, very rich deep color, no scratches, no tears etc. The deep embossing is crisp and masterfully done. The reverse has some foxing.

The frame is a simple black frame with a mat. Haku Maki was fairly prolific but large pieces from this series are not common.
