Joan Miro was a prolific printmaker, exploring new printmaking techniques into his old age. The works in this exhibition are from his later years, when he was experimenting with a wide variety of media.
His constant custom was typified by a search for new experiences from his techniques and materials. With his usual, remarkable flair for color, these bold prints highlight Miro's ongoing desire to challenge viewer’s expectations and coerce some viable meaning from mere matter.
That Miro considered printmaking crucial to his later output is evidenced by a 1969 letter to Roland Penrose, where the artist wrote that his "printed work occupies a more and more important and central place in my production and in the message I want it to have."
