This piece is an original etching, aquatint, and carborundum by Joan Miro, created in 1969. It is hand signed and numbered from the edition of 75 on Arches paper. is referenced as number 506 in "Miro Engraver, Vol. II" by Jacques Dupin.

Great masters like Miro were often inspired by the images of Classical Western myth and literature.  In this instance the inspiration comes from Ovids original descriptions of the  mythical Harpy a creature with a womans body but the talons and wings of a bird. Miro"s take takes this foreboding creature and turns it into something light and colorful.  Miró's whimsical approach maintains a sense of the original figure but interjects a sense of lightness and color that is infused in all of Miró's finest works. 

 

Joan Miró was born in Spain in 1893 and quickly had more of an interest in art than academics. After being forced into the business world by his parents, Miró had what can be characterized as a bit of a breakdown, and abandoned his business career and devoted himself to making art. He went on to study landscape and decorative art at the School of Industrial and Fine Arts in Barcelona. Early in his career, he primarily painted still-lifes, landscapes and genre scenes. As he traveled, more contemporary influences interested the artist, such as Fauvism, Cubism and Surrealism. He often used a limited palette, but the colors chosen were bold and expressive. Miró’s signature geometric shapes, biomorphic forms, and partially abstract objects are seen in many platforms in multimedia from engravings and ceramic pieces to large bronze installations as well as print making.
