Historical Description

Faint hues of cherry blossom and lavender leave ghostly impressions in this effervescent piece. Crisp black marks delineate an inky pathway through a dreamlike landscape. Simple yet alluring, this soothing piece demonstrates the softer and subtler side of Miró with a limited palette and minimal style.

Created in 1963, Tracé sur l'eau (Trace on the Water) is from the series of fourteen lithographs based on unique watercolors. From the unsigned edition of 900 by Maeght Éditeur, Paris, it is printed on Marais onion skin paper (total edition was 1,000, 900 unsigned on onion skin paper, 100 signed on Rives wove paper).
