Description

Miro spent time at both the Paris and New York studios of Atelier 17, the latter time spent studying color viscosity printing techniques in depth. This is plate three from a group of four prints made on the occasion of the 1973 exhibition of Miro's work at the Pierre Matisse Gallery. It included three variations of a color etching and aquatint and one color lithograph.
