THE LAST TRULY GREAT ILLUSTRATED BOOK OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY: A BRILLIANT EXPOSITION OF JOAN MIRO'S WORK THAT REQUIRED SEVEN YEARS TO PRODUCE, WITH TWENTY PENCIL-SIGNED ORIGINAL PRINTS BY NILS BURWITZ. Twenty texts about Miro by leading Spanish and Catalan intellectuals and artists, including Camilo Jose Cela, Rafael Alberti, and Robert Graves (who spent much of his life living in Mallorca). The texts are in Spanish or Catalan (except for Graves' poem, which is in English), and all appear here in first edition. Each text is accompanied by a AN ORIGINAL COLOR FULL-PAGE HORS-TEXTE MIXED-MEDIA PRINT BY NILS BURWITZ, JUSTIFIED AND SIGNED IN PENCIL BY THE ARTIST. These twenty highly complex prints are mostly etchings, often with aquatint and embossing. They brilliantly illuminate various aspects of Miro's work--and unmistakably demonstrate Burwitz' artistic and technical virtuosity. EDITION LIMITED TO 125 COPIES, ALL PRINTED ON EXTREMELY FINE HANDMADE PAPER AND SIGNED BY THE ARTIST IN THE COLOPHON. Large folio. Loose as issued in the original solander case, covered with beautiful dyed fabric made in Mallorca. Ceramic plaque with the title mounted to the front cover. Housed in a cloth slipcase. FINE AND BRIGHT, WITH NO DEFECTS. Laid in is a prospectus and a copy of the explanatory booklet--one of 1,000 copies, also signed by Burwitz--that contains reproductions of all of the prints, portraits (by Burwitz, of course) of all of the authors, and translations of all of the texts into English and German (and into Spanish for the Catalan texts, and Catalan for the Spanish). A monumental and stunning work. N° de réf. du libraire 3631
