Poem 71-45 (S3261)

$800.00

This Maki Big Red has the Kanji (Chinese character) for Flower as its theme. The Flower is red and strong; it is set off by a black Sun to the right. A blue tear balances the sun on the left. Maki’s seal in red ink paste, is below the tear, also at the left. Although Maki himself printed this image, the ink looks as if it was layered on by hand. The paper in this print is smooth without the moon-surface effect of other prints done at this time. In 1969 and running just through 1974, Maki did a series of these bold Big Red prints. He did at most 15 Big Reds.
