Joan Prats was a close friend to Miró who, as a great lover of the avant-garde, became an expert on his art. Exuberant and expressive, this work pays fitting homage to Prats who played an important role in the Fundació Miró, donating his personal collection for public viewing. Collectors will appreciate the personal and artistic value of Homenatge à Joan Prats, noting the play of bold lines, captivating primary colors, and delicate splatters of ink.
Created in 1972, this color lithograph is printed on Guarro paper and is hand-signed by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 - Palma, 1983) in pencil in the lower right. Numbered from the edition of 150, this edition was created before the later one with letters and published by Berggruen, Paris.
