Edition 14/75

Bibliography: Maeght ed. "Miro Lithographs", vol II, n° 391 p.34 (ill)

Signed in pencil on lower right recto “Miro”

Numbered in pencil on lower left recto "14/75"

From the edition of 75. 

Printed and published by Maeght, Paris on Vellum paper

 “The flowing of the cascade of water on the left vertical runs amok from the circular water source placed high into the top right corner. Although Miro cherished the act of automatic or random drawing, we see the festive transcendence of dark figurative apparitions.  Circular elements stream through the composition like planetary orbits. Playful volleys of color are cemented within the picture plane with the complementing obscure color palette.”

The close relationship with Fernand Mourlot resulted in the creation of over one thousand Joan Miró lithographic print editions. His process of automatic drawing, allowing the hand to move randomly on the surface, leaving the artwork to chance, enabled him to create works that were genuine reflections of himself, an integral part of his popularity. A popularity that remains today, as they make for 91% of all his works bought on the market.

In the summer of 1946, at the age of 64, Pablo Picasso, Françoise Gilot and companion, Louis Fort, attended the annual pottery exhibition in Vallauris.

It is here, he met ceramicist, Suzanne Ramié. He took great interest in the artisan ceramic market of this region and was excited by the possibilities of this new medium. Picasso went on to befriend Georges and Suzanne Ramié and became captivated by their Madoura Pottery Studio. 

Picasso would return to Vallauris in the summer of 1947, after an invitation from Suzanne Ramié herself. Georges and Suzanne Ramié were very hospitable to Picasso, and even put all their other studio artisans at his disposal. Offering tool, personnel, material, storage, and techniques, knowledge, time, and experience, to Picasso– he thrived, spending most of 1947 at the studio.  

Over the next 25 years Picasso would create over 3,500 plates, vases, pitchers and other forms. Picasso would work with Madoura Studio until around the time of the artist’s death in 1973.

Mel Bochner’s linguistically masterful monoprints are bold and obtrusive. They slam into the art-world like an exploding grenade of letters.   Shrapnel and fragments visually pierce the viewers’ psyche with their curved edges.  In "Kvetch", 2020, Bochner’s six’ reads left to right in a repetitious pattern of laughing litany.  Bochner smears, smoothers, and smudges oil paint into deeply carved Plexiglas plates. These plates act as reverse stencils; the equivalent to filling a trough with water. The paint sits in the recessed holding area, while paper is laid down and covers the colors in the Plexiglass molds.  The paper and Plexiglas are positioned on a metal print bed and run through a hydraulic printing press process that applies 750 tons of pressure to the ground and medium; thus transferring the paint to the paper.  The handmade paper is pushed deep into the recessed letter molds, resulting in a print plate mark.  The letters appear raised on the paper with a letter embossment.



Texturally, these letters have a sculptural quality in their impasto-esque nature.  The raised surface of the letters is created when the suction of the paper to the plate is released. The oil paint sticks to the paper and the color peel out of the Plexiglas letter molds.

Peace After Battle, Circa 1999

Paint on wood panel

41 x 41 in

"An orange and yellow glow creates a temporary aura of celebratory triumph. Horses, riders, and fighters are centralized and highly concentrated into the middle of the composition. In this cluster, a newfound confidence permeates the air.

Heads are held high, while the stars in the sky shine bright for those who have fought, won, and survived. They live to fight another day.

The found wood panels gives tribute and testament of the wonderous moment, shared by those present. High above, the ancestors are seen cradled in the evening’s illuminations, floating within too many stars to count. They provide shimmering rays of hope that beam down to the fighters, forging a beacon for a brighter future.

This momentary peacetime is cherished after this battle, indeed a time to celebrate a win, but the war is far from over.

The cosmos wraps them up in star-studded blanket to preserve the elated state, a peaceful rest."

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without

Everyone is going crazy for British street artist, Banksy’s artwork that appeared on a wall in Nottingham, central England, depicting a young girl using a bicycle tire as a hula hoop. The work appeared on last Tuesday on the red brick wall of a beauty salon, next to a bicycle that was locked to a metal signpost and missing its back wheel.

As Banksy revels in the spotlight. Mr. Brainwash is right behind with his showmanship appropriations of Bansky’s signature stencils.

Check out Mr. Brainwash at New River Fine Art.

Purvis Young (1943 - 2010)
Battle for Freedom, Circa 1990
Paint on panel with wood frame
48 x 35 in

Metaphysical confrontations of supernatural spirits, demons and angles have battled in the heavens and in the depths of hell, fighting over humans’ well-being. And yet man’s physical altercations in the 1950’s and 60’s Civil Rights movement protests illustrate that the war between good and evil has been with us in many forms for over a millennium.

The constant resurrection of goodness, not that of viciousness and evil, speaks the deepest truth about our world and our lives. It is said that good always triumphs over evil. Capturing a biblical war, the painting evokes a classic renaissance aesthetic.

“Battle for Freedom” by Young has a similar struggle being portrayed. With affixed found objects as sidebar comments on the gestalt of the painting’s meaning, the pool of blood on the bottom part of the painting continues to rise as the slaughter persists. However, it does appear the good, once again has the upper hand as mankind is again on the precipice of peril.

The artworld is buzzing with excitement of the upcoming Phillips Auction on Oct 21, 2020. In the lot is a cohort of amazing Andy Warhol works. The next two days will be electrifying as Phillips hosts their two-day auction.

However, why not see the Andy Warhol selections at New River Fine Art!!!

For Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe was the perfect interplay of personal tragedy and beauty. The world was captivated by the actress; newspapers provided access to her life through a steady stream of front-page articles and black and white photos. Shortly after her death in August of 1962, Warhol cropped a publicity still of the actress, blowing her image up and using it to create his silkscreens. With Marilyn’s image everywhere, her tragically short life was encapsulated by the likeness Warhol burned into his screens.

"Beauties in photographs are different from beauties in person. It must be hard to be a model, because you’d want to be like the photograph of you, and you can't ever look that way – and so you start to copy the photograph." —Andy Warhol
