Heroic Poetry: Brinkman / Frankenthaler / Mitchell / Motherwell / Nevelson / Tàpies
Oiseau de feu / Firebird (D. 360, B. 62). Original color etching & aquatint with carborundum, 1963. 75 signed & numbered impressions. This work has been included in a number of important retrospectives of Miro's works, including exhibits in Spain, and Japanese Miró retrospectives in 1984 ( 6-city ) and 1991-2 (5 cities). One of Miro's first masterpieces using large scale and carborundum to achieve an almost painterly richness of texture. Its power and intensity suggests Miro's impact on Jackson Pollock, who saw Miró's work in 1944. Image size: 560x790mm. Price: $32,250.
Oiseau lune jaune / Yellow moonbird (D. 362, B. 64). Original color etching & aquatint with carborundum, 1963. 75 signed & numbered impressions. One of Miro's first masterpieces using large scale and carborundum to achieve an almost painterly richness of texture. Image size: 560x790mm. Price: $32, 250.
La danse de feu / The Fire's Dance (Maeght 341). Original color lithograph, 1963. 90 signed & numbered impressions of which this is one plus c. 1500 unsigned impressions with centerfolds published in the deluxe art review, Derrière le Miroir, in a celebration of Miro's collaborations with the ceramicist Jospe Llorens Artigas. The title probably refers to the action of the fire on the clay in Artigas' Japanese wood-fired kiln where they worked. There is a full-page illustration of this piece in Indelible Miro. Image size: 475x655mm. Price: $17,500.

Also available in the unsigned edition published in Derrière le Miroir with the centerfold and without margins. Image size: 380x560mm. Price: $1400.
Danse Barbare (M. 350). Original color lithograph, 1963. 90 signed & numbered impressions of which this is one plus c. 1500 unsigned impressions with centerfolds published in the deluxe art review, Derrière le Miroir, in a celebration of Miro's collaborations with the ceramicist Jospe Llorens Artigas. The title is suggestive of Stravinsky's great ballet, Le sacre du printemps, though Miro did not need its example to call to mind a landsacpe of love, fauns, and celebrations of spring. Image size: 443x598mm. Price: $17,500.
Composition 1 for Miro-Artigas (M. 343). Original color lithograph, 1963. Edition unknown (c. 1500 unsigned impressions); published in a special number of the deluxe art review Derrière le Miroir dedicated to Miro's recent ceramics with Josep Llorens Artigas. Image size: 380x280mm. Price: $1000.
