Original Color Lithograph Additional text verso Maeght Editeur, Paris 1963 Unsigned, not individually numbered. Edition: 1,500 Includes a certificate of authenticity. In the early 1960s, Joan Mirò, the iconic Spanish surrealist artist, made a profound impact on the art world through a series of lithographs, particularly those featured in the renowned French magazine "Derrière le Miroir." These lithographs showcase Mirò's distinctive artistic language, characterized by playful and imaginative forms. Mirò's lithographs from this period are a testament to his mastery of abstract and symbolic imagery. Each piece unfolds like a visual poem, with vivid colors and whimsical shapes that invite viewers into a world of dreamlike contemplation. Published in "Derrière le Miroir," these lithographs gained widespread recognition for their avant-garde nature and artistic innovation. Mirò's engagement with surrealism and abstract expressionism is palpable in each lithograph, demonstrating a unique fusion of tradition and contemporary artistic trends. The series captures Mirò's ability to communicate complex ideas through a visual language of symbols and shapes, inviting viewers to interpret and engage with the artwork on a personal level. As a key figure in 20th-century art, Mirò's lithographs from the early 1960s, especially those featured in "Derrière le Miroir," continue to captivate art enthusiasts with their timeless and enigmatic allure.

1893 Montroig, Spain

Joan Miró was born at Montroig (Barcelona), in 1893. After a nervous breakdown because of his job as an accountant, in contrast with his artistic vocation, in 1912 he started attending the Academy Galí in Barcelona.

At the beginning he was attracted by Impressionism and Fauvism, but when he moved to Paris in 1919, he finally found his Surrealist trends. Here he met Picasso and Dadaists but when he met Max Ernst and the Surrealists he become “the most Surrealist of the Surrealists” (Max Ernst). In 1928 he exhibited his artworks at Barnheim’s gallery becoming famous. His paintings are the lyric and symbolic representation of the reality, an evocative transposition of memory and unconscious impulses, many basic graphic signs and deformations characterized by brilliant colours lost in a dreaming and enchanted atmosphere.

Miró finally left the traditional painting for the abstraction. Les peintures sauvages (1935) are a great example of his style. After the civil war, he came back to Spain, living between Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca. During these years he painted the famous Constellations and from ‘40s he realized many mural paintings and monumental sculptures (Hotel Terrace Palace of Cincinnati -1947, Palace of UNESCO in Paris – 1958). In 1972 he found the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona and during his last years he received many prizes and awards. He died in 1983 in Palma de Mallorca.
