Stanton Macdonald-Wright’s Haiga Portfolio, 1966-1967, is an example of the artist’s most pronounced blending of Eastern and Western influences. Seventy-five years old when he did them they meld innovations of Western modern art with Japan’s greatest poetry. The term haiga refers to a style of Japanese painting done by haiku poets. Haiku poems are known for their extreme brevity and simplicity. Each of the twenty prints that compose the Haiga Portfolio have a corresponding haiku written by one of Japan’s most important poets.
