Story / Additional InfoCahir d’Hombres. The complete set of four lithographs in colours (one a double page in black for the cover), on Arches paper, with text by Philippe Denis, loose (as issued), all contained in the original blue linen-covered portfolio and slipcase. Three lithographs signed in pencil, additionally signed by Philippe Denis and numbered '11' on the justification page in black ink (from the edition of 200, there were also 30 in Roman numerals), published by Maeght, Paris. Note: The evocative poetry in Philippe Denis's first published volume brings to mind many images: "Dark halo,/ rag of this lamp at midnight,/wick of the heart lowered" begins one sparse poem in the volume. Weaving together dark and light imagery, the poet finds a match in Joan Miró, whose work contains multiple layers. The splatter of black ink staining the background lays an impulsive foundation for the tangible, calligraphic marks comprising the rest of the composition.

Joan Miro - Spain
Joan Miró was a seminal figure in 20th-century avant-garde painting. The Spanish artist’s innovative use of line, organic shapes, and color represents a major contribution to Surrealism. Representative of his ability to conjure evocative space—Miró’s famed triptych Blue I,II,II (1961), portrays a floating world using only blue, orange, and black. “Little by little, I've reached the stage of using only a small number of forms and colors,” the artist reflected. “It's not the first time that painting has been done with a very narrow range of colors. The frescoes of the tenth century are painted like this.” Born on April 20, 1893 in Barcelona, Spain, the artist first studied commerce before defying his parents and enrolling at the art academy in his hometown. In 1919, Miró moved to Paris where he fell into the Surrealist milieu, befriending André Breton, Max Ernst, Jean Arp, and André Masson. Miró’s work profoundly influenced several American painters, including Arshile Gorky and Mark Rothko. The artist died at age 90 on December 25, 1983 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, a museum dedicated to the artist and his legacy.
