l’Libre dels sis Sentits IV (D. 1168)

l’Libre dels Sis Sentits IV (D. 1168), 1981 by Joan Miro is an original color etching and aquatint from the L’libre dels sis Sentits Portfolio.  From the edition of 50 signed and numbered in pencil on Guarro paper, with the publisher watermark. Published by Sala Gasper and printed by J.J. Torralba. Dupin 1168.

Before 1920 the art of Joan Miro showed the latest stylish influences, including the brightly colored palette of the Fauvism, and the geometric forms of Cubism. Under the influence of the poets and writers of Montparnasse Miro developed a style unlike any other, with organic forms and flattened two-dimensional planes drawn with sharp lines. Generally thought of as a Surrealist due to Miro’s interest in automatism, Miro’s style was influenced in varying degrees by the Dada and Surrealist movements, as well as Catalan folk art, Spanish Romanesque church frescoes, and the primitivism of Paleolithic cave paintings. Miro’s forms took on a whimsical quality with playfully distorted animal & human forms, twisted organic shapes and boldly colored geometric constructions, set against flat neutral backgrounds, mostly painted using red, blue, green and yellow.

Joan Miro began working in the graphic print mediums thanks to friendships with the circle of poets and writers that he met in Paris by means of Andre Masson. Miro was asked to create various illustrations for their avant-garde illustrated books. The mediums of etching and lithography facilitated, to Miro’s delight, a greater distribution of his artwork, reaching a wider audience. During those years, Joan Miro created thousands of prints and over a hundred illustrated books.
