Historical Description

Joan Miró Pic de La Mirandole (Peak of Mirandole), 1975 depicts a large anamorphic form that encompasses the majority of the picture plane in a layering of dark black tones and splatters that create a sense of motion, activity and depth.  Executed in bold and brilliant colors, including red, blue, green, and yellow, this piece is a magnificent example of Miró ’s color expertise. The balance of linear and curving forms creates a visual push and pull, giving a sense of activity in this work.  From the period in Miró’s career which focused primarily on printmaking, this piece illustrates the artist’s technical skill and mastery in combining multiple printmaking techniques into one image.

Created in 1975, this color aquatint and etching on phototype ground was printed by Morsang, Paris, and published by Maeght, Paris. Hand signed by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 – Palma, 1983) in pencil in the lower right, this work is numbered from the edition of 50 in the lower left.
