Joan Miró – Hommage a San Lazzaro

Joan Miró, Hommage a San Lazzaro, or ‘Le Miroir secret du feu et du froid‘ is an original Linoleum in Relief with Colors print made in 1977.  It is signed and numbered in pencil.  Image Size: 12 x 9 in. Printed by Fequet et Baudier, Paris.  Published by Editions Gerald Cramer, Geneve.  Cramer 229.

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.
