A subtle composition of rounded abstract, organic forms on a soft background of greys, browns and teal; these are crossed by a black, horizontally tapering line, above which floats, planet-like, another dim form. The softly textured, floating forms and muted colors contrast with blue and orange circular shapes. An impression of antiquity prevails, as if we are witnessing the creation of life.
An evocative print from Hideo Hagiwara's abstract period of the 1960's.

Good. Fine impression and color, mica highlights, minor creasing and discolor in margin, slight paper rubbing top right margin, soft crease bottom left corner.
