Notes (this edition)?The following information was taken from the original web listing of this artwork. Often written by non-experts, there may be inaccuracies:


IT IS BY THE RENOWNED WOODBLOCK ARTIST KIYOSHI SAITO. HE MADE A SMALL SERIES OF PRINTS DEPICTING ANCIENT JAPANESE BURIAL POTTERY FIGURES CALLED HANIWA. THIS PRINT IS NUMBER 1 IN THAT SERIES. IT DATES FROM THE 1950'S. THESE PRINTS ARE PRIME EXAMPLES OF SAITO'S USE OF WOODBLOCKS SPECIALLY VENEERED TO IMPART STRONG WOODGRAIN EFFECTS. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THIS MADE THE PRINTING PROCESS MORE EXACTING. THE PRINT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION EXCEPT FOR A SLIGHT TONING AROUND THE IMAGE AREA. THERE ARE FRAMER'S SMALL PENCILLED NUMBERS ON THE MARGINS BUT THESE CAN BE ERASED. THE IMAGE SIZE IS 11 1/4" x 5 7/8". THE PAPER SIZE IS 15" x 9 1/2".
