Medium: color pochoir-type 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 very rare piece 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 the original painting was on. Published 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.

Framing suggestion: the collector may wish to frame this with a window in back, so that the actual manufacturer's logo on back of the sandpaper is displayed. A richly inked impression in good condition, this unusual Miro seems to invite the viewer to touch it!
