Heroic Poetry: Brinkman / Frankenthaler / Mitchell / Motherwell / Nevelson / Tàpies
The late 1960s saw an incredible creative burst from Miró centering on printmaking. Commenting once upon a book that argued that Aimé Maeght was a slave-driver who ordered Miró to produce many prints during the late 1960s and early 1970s, Jean Frémon of Galerie Maeght and Galerie Lelong laughed and said that the case was quite the reverse: that Aimé Maeght urgerd Miró not to produce so many lithographs because he feared that the art market could not absorb them all. Miró's concession was to agree to spread the publication of these prints out over a number of years but their making went on without a pause.

Astre et fumée / Star and Smoke (Dupin 424). Original color aquatint and etching with carborundum, 1967. 75 signed and numbered impressions on Mandeure rag paper printed by Arte Adrien Maeght and published by Maeght éditeur, Paris. One of Miró's most important prints, this work was selected by the Museum of Modern Art's Riva Castleman as the only Miró included in Modern Art in Prints (NY: MoMA, 1973), p. 39, an exhibition that was shown at MoMA before touring in the Far East, Australia, and New Zealand. Castleman wrote of this work, "Liquid washes form the smoky passages that swirl around the crusty star-disks. Raspy linear jottings are magical messages in a code devised by the artist. This abstract, placeless composition is typical of the abandoned gaiety of Miró's inventively modern spirit." She adds, "Spontaneity and rhythms were basic factors in the artistic developments occurring in the decade after World War II. Miró displays in his work the roots from which some of these developments grew." Image size: 750x560mm. Price: SOLD.
