Price on Request
Joan Miró Poster for the film 'Umbracle,' 1973 is a lively work that was originally created as a movie poster for the film Umbracle, an experimental feature film by Catalan filmmaker Pere Portabella. Bold colors, lively imagery, and vivid spontaneity are standard to Miró's iconic works, and this piece is no exception.
Miró focuses on the title of the film, spelling out the title in letters that appear to buzz with animation. He utilizes swirling lines that surround the letters to create this sense of energy. He frames the title writing in his trademark fanciful forms such as asterisks, eyes, and arrows that add a splash of color in green, blue, yellow, and red. This original color lithograph was printed before the additional movie credit lettering seen on the poster, allowing the viewer to focus on Miro's whimsical depiction of the title Umbracle.
Created in 1973, this color lithograph is hand-signed in the lower right in pencil by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 - Palma, 1983) and also signed in the stone 'Miró' in black in the left of the image . Inscribed "H.C" (hors de commerce) in pencil in the lower left margin, aside from the numbered edition of 50. This work was published by Sala Gaspar, Barcelona and printed by Puresa, Barcelona.
