About

JOAN MIRÓ 1893-1983 Montroig 1893-1983 Mallorca (Spanish) Title: The Dandy, 1969 Technique: Original Hand Signed and numbered Etching with Aquatint and Carborundum in Colours on Mandeure Rag Paper Paper size: 75.3 x 58.5 cm. / 28.6 x 41.1 in. Image size: 41.8 x 43.5 cm. / 16.5 x 17.1 in. Additional Information: This etching with aquatint and carborundum is hand signed by the artist in pencil "Miró" at lower right margin. It is also hand numbered in pencil, from the edition of 75 at the lower left margin. It was printed and published by Maeght Éditeur, Paris, in 1969 in a limited edition of 75 impressions. There were also a few HC proofs aside from the regular edition. Note: From 1967 onwards, Robert Dutrou introduced Miró to a new technique invented by Henry Goetz: Silicon Carbide engraving. Different from traditional engraving, here the incised work is replaced by a relief work, a hard superstructure on the copper surface. "The method consists of setting very high pressure resistant substances such as Silicon Carbide, synthetic varnish, or both, on the plate surface. The interstices between the silicon carbide grains and the streaks in the varnish replace the holes or grooves in the metal itself in the more classical methods. These interstices, which hold the printing ink, give it back to the moist paper, under press, to create a print" Miro wrote in a letter to Goetz: "the results are fascinating and very beautiful. The artist can express himself with more richness and freedom... which give a beautiful substance and a more powerful line..." Silicon carbide gave Miró what he was looking for, large and strong original prints, almost "picture prints". Literature: Dupin, J. (1989). Miró Engraver, Vol. II 1961-1973. Paris: Éditeur Daniel Lelong. Reference: Dupin 492. Condition: Very good condition. Light discolouration of the paper in the upper and lower margins. Minor nicks along the sheet edge. Tape remains at three points along the upper sheet edge, verso. Pale backboard staining across the sheet, verso.
