La Triple Roue I (M.1235)

La Triple Roue I, 1981 by Joan Miro is a lithograph on Arches paper, signed in the lower right, and numbered lower left from the edition of 100. This piece is part of the “Allegro Vivace” series. Published by Daniel Lelong, Paris and printed by Atelier Lelong, Paris in M.1235.

Joan Miró was a widely considered one of the leading Surrealists, although he was never officially part of the group. He pioneered a wandering linear style of Automatism — a method of “random” drawing that attempted to express the inner workings of the human psyche. Miró rejected the constraints of traditional paintings by creating works “conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness,” as he once said. He used color and form in a symbolic rather than literal manner. His compositions combine abstract elements with recurring motifs such as birds, eyes, and the moon. “I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music,” he said. Miró has inspired many artists, most significantly Arshile Gorky, whose bold linear abstractions proved a foundational influence on Abstract Expressionism.
