The art journal "Derriere le Miroir" (abbreviated to DLM) appeared in print from 1946 to 1982. Published by the French art dealer, collector and publisher Aime Maeght, it ran to two hundred and fifty issues. Galerie Maeght, which opened in Paris in 1945 in Paris, exhibited the work of distinguished contemporary artists, including Bonnard, Matisse, Braque, Leger, Steinberg, Chagall, Bram, van de Velde, Miro, Kandinsky, Giacometti, Ubac, Bazaine, Calder, Derain, Chillida, Tapies and many others. Publication of DLM launched Maeght's career as a publisher. The art magazine "Derriere le miroir" - designed like an exquisite work of art - always appeared in the same format (38 x 28 cm) and included numerous original lithographs by the above mentioned artists as well as a great many reproductions. Poets and men of letters such as Louis Aragon, Samuel Beckett, Rene Char, Paul Eluard, Jacques Prevert, Raymond Queneau, Pierre Reverdy, Jean-Paul Sartre and others embellished the work with previously unpublished texts. Many of the lithographs originally published in DLM are sought-after collector's items today; the earliest issues of DLM are rarely encountered in good condition.


About the Artists

1898 Lawnton, United States

Alexander Calder was born in Philadelphia in 1898 and died in New York in 1976.

Alexander Calder best known for his innovation of the mobile suspended sheet metal and wire assemblies that are activated in space by air currents.

Visually fascinating and emotionally engaging, those sculptures — along with his monumental outdoor bolted sheet metal stabiles, which only imply movement— make Calder one of the most-recognizable and beloved modern artists.

He also made a smaller number of sculptures in the more-traditional materials of wood and bronze and did paintings, mostly in gouache, as well as drawings, including illustrations for books, and prints, and was an inventive designer of jewellery.
