from Joan Miro Lithographies Vol 1

Comes with a Charles Scott Gallery COA

The volume, "Joan Miro: Lithographs Vol. I" contained 11 original lithographs (five of which were double pages, plus the dust jacket), of which this is Plate 2 (II). The edition was limited in Spain (the volume this is from) and represents the complete Catalogue Raisonne of the artist’s work between 1930 and 1952. It was printed in Paris/Barcelona by Fernand Mourlot in 1972 with no signature.

Print is disbound from volume and measures approximately 12 1/2" x 9 3/4".

Joan Miro was of course a Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramicist born in Barcelona. A museum dedicated to his work, the Fundació Joan Miró, was established in his native city of Barcelona in 1975, and another, the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró, was established in his adoptive city of Palma de Mallorca in 1981. Today, Miró's paintings sell for between $250,000 and $26 million.

Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism but with a personal style, sometimes also veering into Fauvism and Expressionism. He was notable for his interest in the unconscious or the subconscious mind, reflected in his re-creation of the childlike. His difficult to classify works also had a manifestation of Catalan pride. In numerous interviews dating from the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and declared an "assassination of painting" in favour of upsetting the visual elements of established painting.
