  • "Of all the areas explored by Miró (sculpture, stained glass, ceramics, tapestry, theatre, etc.), graphic work attracted him the most. The direct action of the artist on the copper or stone plate, the magical moment of seeing how the markings he had made were transferred to paper, the desire to achieve a kind of vibration with the inks… All the possibilities offered by printmaking and lithography were a challenge for Miró. This active interest, lasting until the end of his life, was the source of a remarkable production, in terms not just of quantity but, above all, of quality,"
    Rosa Maria Malet, Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona.

    "I need a starting point," explained Miró, "even if it is only a speck of dust or a beam of light. This form provides me with a series of things, each giving rise to the next. As such, a strand of thread can inspire a whole word."
