Property from a Private Collector, New York City

Description:

Joan Miro (Spanish, 1893-1983), Crapaud Lyre (Lyre Toad), Drypoint and Aquatint Etching, 1965, pencil signed lower right, numbered 21/75 lower left, floating in a metal frame, with Kulicke gallery label on verso. Frame size: 26 3/8 in. x 36 7/8 in.

Joan Miro was a Catalan Spanish painter, sculptor, ceramicist and printmaker from Barcelona. Miro had a brief stint in the business world before abandoning it to pursue art after a nervous collapse. He is largely classified as a surrealist, but some of his work reflects that of his fauvist and expressionist contemporaries. Miro split his time between Paris and Spain and was represented by Pierre Matisse in his New York Gallery. He recieved international recognition after World War II along with many prestigious commissions and accolades. His large scale projects can be seen as murals and large sculptures at Harvard University, the UNESCO building in Paris and in Chicago and Houston. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Tate and the Art Insitute of Chicago among many others, including the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, a museum dedicated to the artist and his legacy.
