The Joan Miró Foundation presents a series of etchings, engravings and lithographs from their collection, which can be visited up until the 24th of September
A series of etchings, engravings and lithographs, principally organised by eras, make up an exhibition titled Joan Miró. Printmaking, which can be seen in the Joan Miró Foundation up until the 24th of September. This is a selection of graphic works which the artist created using techniques such as burin, drypoint, etching or aquatint.
The organisation of the exhibition allows the visitor to discern the influence of these techniques on the artist’s pictorial creativity, and vice versa, and reflects on the levels of experimentation undertaken by the artist in this field during the three decades from the thirties to the sixties while providing an explanation of the evolution of Miró’s artistic language in general.
From his years in Paris, where he studied the techniques in the studio of Louis Marcoussi, to the sixties and seventies, when his work was influenced by Japanese calligraphy, the exhibition displays the technical advances made by the artist over the decades - variations, experimentations, and developments of an artist whose entire body of work possesses its own unique language.
The exhibition includes a documentary film titled Miró, lithographie d’une affiche, by Claude Prévost.
