In 1948, Miro began his long association with Aime Maeght, who had recently founded Galerie Maeght. He also began working very closely with Josep Llorens Artigas, his old friend and a master ceramicist. The combination led to several important shows at Galerie Maeght featuring his ceramics done in collaboration with Artigas and an increasing interest in lithographs and, later etchings. It also led to increasing abstraction in Miro's work, perhaps because of his interest in peeking in the kiln to check on the progress of ceramics being fired. Images of fire, which become more predominant in the early 1960s begin appearing as do solar images and images of the heavens. It also leads to such masterpieces as the Woman in Fron of the Mirror and the Oiseau Zephyr / Zephyr Bird illustrated below.
