Description:

Joan Miró (Spanish, 1893-1983)

Le chef des équipages, 1973, edition of 50 plus proofs, published by Maeght Éditeur, Paris (Dupin, 574). Signed and numbered "Miró 8/50" in pencil within the image l.c. Color aquatint with etching and carborundum on paper, image/sheet size 54 1/8 x 23 3/4 in. (137.3 x 60.3 cm), framed.
Condition: Deckled edges, crimps and wear to deckles, minor handling creases near left edge, floated within the mat, gentle rippling, not examined out of frame.
Estimate $6,000-8,000

Due to scale, the print cannot be examined out of frame without risking damage to the work. However, the sheet is floated so all edges are visible. Subtle small areas of discoloration at c.l. and c.r. edges. The weight of the framed piece suggests that the glazing is glass. No additional issues to report.
