Joan Miro, Derrière le Miroir, lithograph, documented!
This work is one of seven lithographs that were created to
accompany the catalogue for the exhibition "Terres de grand feu,
Miro-Artigas," which was held in the Galarie Maeght. These works
were among an unnumbered addition published by Maeght. We estimate
the series included 1,000 prints of which few exist today.
This composition would have originally been printed on a double
page layout displayed on pages 14 and 15 of the catalogue. The work
is unique in that Miro relies primarily upon the use of color to
define the composition rather than his signature bold use of line.
Miro once stated that one of his major objectives as an artist was
to arrest the viewer's attention and his use of contrasting colors
effectively accomplishes this affect.
This work is very famous and has been reproduced often. This is
of course the original lithograph.
