Reference: Jacques Dupin “Miro Engravr” Volume IV (Catalogue Raisonne) - Number 1059
Note: In 1979 the artist made a series of 7 etchings on the theme of Large cave paintings. inspired by the most ancient and universal form of human art. The nuanced application of colour and textural depth in this etching highlight his impressive talent. The surrealist nature of these, also, was much to the taste of the artist. The red background of Joan Miro's "Grans Rupestres VII " adds a unique quality to a work which has all the hallmarks of the artists most famous pictures: heavy black brushstrokes, bold swatches of colours, and original shapes that are both geometric and organic.
