About this title

Synopsis:

This Hardcover, published by Tudor Publishing Co. New York, is covered with cloth, dust jacket and protective wraps. The book's condition is like new and contains eleven original lithographs, including five double pages, printed by Fernand Mourlot. Limited to 5000 numbered copies, 232 pages, 189 plates described. The catalogue's text is in English and written by M. Leiris. MiroÍs art is based on the purity of poetic emotion and spontaneity of execution. The artist also found his favorite medium in lithography. The importance of his graphic work, continuous renewal and enrichment of his style show the high value which the artist attached to this medium of expression. Miro uses black ink with a range of values and refined tones, reaching wild and playful effects. With elements derived from Catalan traditional art and a spatiality, Miro gave his objects and symbols a proper life as subjects of stories from other worldly microcosms - the ideal reflection of a world longed for by the artist.
