Joan Miro: Sleeping Lion 1975 Limited Edition Original Lithograph VIII


'Original Lithograph VIII', untitled - Motif: Lion

As it happens frequently with Miró’s art, this abstract and surreal graphic crafted with bright primary colours so typical for the artist poses more questions than he gives answers. Do I recognise a reclined lion, or am I only looking at the playful use of colour segments within a graceful pictorial composition? Whatever you see in this picture, it is your image. By not giving titles to his pictures, Miró always intended to leave some scope for personal associations.
Original lithograph in colors (Mourlot no. 1044), 1975
Text on the reverse: "Joan Miró Original lithograph VIII" (in different languages)

This is N O T a mass-produced reprint (photomechanical reproduction such as photo lithographs or giclée prints) but the original lithograph from 1975, exactly as referenced in the applicable catalogue raisonné.
Sizes: ca. 31,8 x 49,5 cm / 12.5" x 19.5" (sheet)
Edition / Paper: One of the unsigned impressions for the book edition on strong velin paper. In addition, 150 unsigned impressions on Rives wove paper as well as 80 pencil-signed and numbered impressions on Arches wove paper with wide margins were published.
Published by: Different publishers (e.g. Maeght, Paris, for the French edition)
Printed by: Mourlot, Paris
Remarks: This is one of the big pieces in landscape format and thus has the obligatory centrefold and little holes from the thread-stitching, which may bother some people. On the other hand, both the centrefold and the holes from the thread-stitching are important characteristics to be able to tell that this is an original lithograph and not an art print (reprint). Besides, framed in a passe-partout mount, both can be hidden very well.
