Joan Miro stencil print on sandpaper, 1937
Joan Miro stencil print on sandpaper, 1937


Item Code: 923

Medium: stencil print on sandpaper (after the painting). At the height of his period of creative experimentation during the 1930's, Miro executed an abstract painting on sandpaper.
The rare work offered here is a faithful vintage re-creation of that work, and is printed on actual sandpaper. This is the same Wellington Mills, John Oakey & Sons Waterproof No. 2/0 flint sandpaper that was used by Miro for the original painting. Printed in London in 1937 for "Signature: A Quadrimestrial of Typography and Graphic Arts". Size: 9 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches (245 x 165mm). Not signed.
A richly inked impression, this unusual Miro seems to invite the viewer to touch it!
