Joan Miro Lithograph I (M.857)

Joan Miro Lithograph I (M.857), 1972 by Joan Miro is an original lithograph on Arches paper.  It is signed in the lower right, and annotated “epreuve d’artiste” in the lower left in pencil. M.857.

Miró’s art never became fully non-objective. Rather than resorting to complete abstraction, the artist devoted his career to exploring various means by which to dismantle traditional precepts of representation. Miró’s radical, inventive style was a critical contributor in the early-20th-century avant-garde journey toward increasing and then complete abstraction. Miró balanced the kind of spontaneity and automatism encouraged by the Surrealists with meticulous planning and rendering to achieve finished works that, because of their precision, seemed plausibly representational despite their considerable level of abstraction. Miró often worked with a limited palette, yet the colors he used were bold and expressive. His chromatic explorations, which emphasized the potential of fields of unblended color to respond to one another, provided inspiration for a generation of Color Field painters.
