Joan Miró Hommage a San Lazzaro Pl. 7 (Hommage to San Lazzaro Pl. 7), 1977 is the seventh of nine works in the artist’s Hommage to San Lazzaro. This set of works is inspired by XXe Siècl, a periodical created by Gualtieri di San Lazzaro, an Italian author and publisher who sought to showcase works by contemporary European artists. In this work, the artist creates a whimsical composition of black line alongside forms in red, blue and green. At first glance, this assembly appears to be purely abstract; however, upon further inspection, these forms are abstracted versions of the letters which make up the phrase “Hommage a San Lazzaro Miro.” This phrase originates at the top of the composition and extends down and to the left, then to the right. Lining the bottom edge of the work is the artist’s name, an aspect of the work which reminds the viewer of his presence.
Created in 1977, this etching with aquatint printed in colors is hand-signed by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 – Palma, 1983) in pencil in the lower right image and numbered from the edition of 60 in pencil in the lower left image.
