Filled with colorful works that echo "traces on the water," this beautiful set of 10 works from Joan Miró Tracé sur l'eau (Trace on the Water), 1963 evoke various ripples, reflections, currents, and droplets on the surface of a body of water. These works can be considered fluid in every sense; created with watercolor, the application of the media against the thin, Marais onion skin paper replicates this liquid effect. Combined with bold strokes of line to enhance this dreamy, surrealist composition, these series of works will continue to define Miró's mastery of his craft in the modern age.
