In the tradition of an eclectic Surrealist, Joan Miro explored the traditional Catalan craft of Sobreteixims. Sobreteixim is an old word from Catalan, used to describe a small piece of cloth used to patch a larger piece of fabric. Toying with the idea of collage, the famed Spanish artist encountered this particular form of textile art and engaged in it during the last decade of his life. Miro’s sobreteixims signify his keen interest in folk art and culture, they are filled with recognizable symbols, figures of birds and different markings. These objects were had rough and rustic texture, and the artist’s investigation of the medium was crowned with an exhibition held at the Pierre Matisse Gallery of New York in October 1973.
The lithograph on offer here served as a poster for the said exhibition. It’s patchy style evokes the segmented nature of Miro’s textile works, while keeping the conceptual coherence and stylistic traits of his grander oeuvre. The piece is numbered and signed and stands as a historical reference to a particular event occurred during the late period of Joan Miro’s creative path.
