The bottom margin states this is 39/777 but did Maki really do that many and if so where are they?
This is a late in life Maki print. Where did this idea come from? a sunflower! I know van Gogh did quite a few famous paintings depicting many sunflowers, all realistic paintings, the Japanese printmaker Tadashi Nakayama. did many different takes on Sunflowers these were realistic depictions. Nakayama did fewer. Maki did this one and it was quite abstract It was the only Sunflower he did. It came late in life; it is a silk screen effort and interesting if not compelling He used yellow and blue to depict the flower in this lithograph I do not believe Maki did 777 of this or any image.
