Through his career, Haku Maki did a wide array of Chinese characters used in the Japanese language as well (kanji). The large prints that Daniel Tretiak called Big Reds were such kanji. Among Maki’s depictions were black kanji on white backgrounds, some stark, some playful, some easily decipherable, others with which he took great liberties. The artistic possibilities that kanji offered were a fascination of his. This broad-brushed embossed print, Poem 72-55, was done in 1972. It measures 9 3/8in W x 10.5in H and is no. 4 of an edition of 202. The print is in good condition; there are tape remnants on the four corners of the back but they have no impact on the face.
