DESCRIPTION

Publisher: Maeght, Paris

“Towards the Left” (1968) is one of Joan Miro’s later lithograph prints. This work is one of 150 editions printed at ARTE, a printing company established in Paris by Adrien Maeght, the son of Aimé Maeght, Miró's gallerist since 1947. In 1966, when Miró came to Japan for a solo exhibition, he was deeply impressed by Japanese calligraphy and ink painting, with the black lines of the stretching arrows at the bottom of the painting demonstrating the influence of his visit to Japan.
