Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright
Opening of our exhibit on Stanton Macdonald-Wright’s Haigu Portfolio
Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western
influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets. The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku. The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20 th century modernist movement
