 Derrière le Miroir was the legendary art revue published in Paris by Aime Maeght, from 1946 through 1982. Some of the artists who contributed original lithographs were Chagall, Miro, Braque, Giacometti, Kelly, Tapies, Riopelle, Pol Bury, Calder, Alechinsky, Ubac and Palazuelo. Often known by collectors simply as DLM, all issues of Derrière le Miroir are now scarce, and many have become quite valuable and highly prized -- especially the Chagall lithographs.
