More about the artist:
Maki Haku (??, 1924–2000) is the artistic name of Maejima Tadaaki, who was born in Ibaraki Prefecture. He was a s?saku-hanga artist in 20th Century Japan.[1] During World War II, Maejima Tadaaki was trained as a kamikaze pilot in the Japanese air force, but the war ended before he was assigned a mission.[2] Haku had no formal art training, but studied for two years with the s?saku-hanga artist Onchi K?shir? (1891–1955).[3]
Two unique qualities of Maki Haku prints are the textures achieved by working the designs in wet cement and the use of Kanji (Chinese characters) as design motifs.[4] In 1962, he started adding texture to his prints. At first, he added texture to the entire sheet after it was printed. In 1965, he began embossing designs into unprinted paper by using a press to transfer a design created in cement on a carved plywood board, and then adding color with stencils.[5][6] He distorted and rearranged the strokes of Chinese characters to produce striking and serene images. For example, Poem 71-91 is a highly stylized representation of the kanji ?, which is pronounced mu and means nothingness, an important concept in some forms of Buddhism.
The artist participated in the Tokyo International Print Biennale in 1957 and 1960. The book Festive Wine: Ancient Japanese Poems from the Kinkafu is a translation of 21 ancient poems called Kinkafu or Music for Wagon Songs. The translation is accompanied by Maki Haku's prints that were made in 1968–69. The Art Institute of Chicago, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are among the public collections holding prints by Haku Maki[7]

  • Condition
    The print was taken out of its frame and although it is shown with a mat it will be sold just by itself as the mat was not archival, the print is evenly toned throughout, it has some mat burn and the margins that were covered by the mat are slightly lighter toned, there is very minor foxing in the margins visible and the upper edge verso with mounting tape residue, the print can be cleaned but I will leave this to the buyer,
