This is an original drypoint realized by Joan Miró in 1975. Hand signed in pencil on the lower right and numbered on the lower left. Edition of 75 prints. It represents an abstract scene. This print is part of the second volume of “Journal d’un Graveur” (total volume of three, each containing 15 prints), published by Maeght, Paris, in 1975. Very good conditions.
While Joan Miró (1893-1983) rejected any formal association with movements or groups, including the Surrealists, André Breton recognised him as “the most Surrealist of us all”. His artistic approach encouraged the free play of associations and envisaged “accidents” to provoke reactions that closely connected to subconscious experiences. Miró’s famous motifs consist of freely reshaped fragments cut from catalogues for machinery on canvases to form black silhouettes – solid or in outline, with dramatic accents of white and red.
