Historical Description of this artwork


Joan Miró creates a very balanced and pleasing composition in Rouge et bleu (Red and Blue), 1960. The piece is broken down into three main compositional elements. To the left there is a large blue rectangle, in the middle a series of 6 almost identical red dots, and finally to the right there is a series of 6 almost identical black forms, punctuated by a ‘period’ of sorts. The band of blue is about the same height as the pillar of red dots and black shapes, adding harmony to the lithograph. The equality between the red and black helps to add balance to the piece. A fourth more delicate element adds to the piece in the form of slight lines forming detail on the blue rectangle. These lines break the bounds of the rectangle, pointing off in multiple directions. An element of this has completely escaped the blue, and a star rests between two red dots.

Created in 1960, this color lithograph is hand signed by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 – Palma, 1983) in pencil in the lower right corner and numbered from the edition of 100 in pencil in the lower left corner; published by Maeght Editors, Paris; printed by Mourlot, Paris.
