15th - 20th Cent. Masters
The Lunar Glazier
The deep embossment of the etching plate is visible in the center of the image. Also discernible is the magnificent color layering achieved during the etching process. The aquatint is clear, with tonal shading and variations of the darkness of the grey strokes in the center background. The etching creates movement as if the abstract strokes are flying. We are left astounded by the brilliance and artistic courage of Miró. The foundation of his art is always to leave us to use our own imagination.
