Haku Maki

(Japanese, 1924-2000)

Relief print with stencil

Platemark: 40.3 x 40.3 cm (15 7/8 x 15 7/8 in.)

Gift of Mr. and Mrs. William E. Ward 1985.166



Maki achieves an embossed effect in his prints by creating a sculptural surface on his printing block. He works his designs in wet cement on the cut-out areas of a woodblock and textures the cement before it dries. Dampened paper is pressed deeply into this highly irregular surface during printing, resulting in the raised areas visible in the final print.
