This dynamic black and white lithograph was created by Joan Miro during the summer of 1975. This lithograph, entitled, Homage to Joan Prats, was part of a series of 11 prints created by a group of 8 artists to honor the life of their friend, Joan Prats. Included in the portfolio were works by such revered artists as Calder, Chillida, Tapies and Miro.
This work of art, published by Fundacio and printed by La Poligrafa, is one of only 10 Hors Commerce (Not For Sale in French), numbered in Roman numerals, that was printed in black and white. 75 additional prints were also published in color, but lack the dramatic impact of this large black and white, spectacular lithograph.
The works of art were created in tribute to to their good friend, Joan Prats, a Barcelona hat-maker whose shop was a gathering place for artists and critics until his death in 1970.
This work of art is numbered H.C. VII / X in the lower left and signed in graphite by the artist in the lower right of the lithograph. The entire very small edition was run as follows: 75 works in color; 25 works in B&W with 10 HC’s in color and 10 in B&W.
The work has been framed by our award winning framing operation using all conservational materials including a special museum quality 98% UV filtering acrylic.
