A luminous red orb drifts above whimsical forms and colorful layers in this stunning, large-scale work. Miró is known for his great innovation and experimentation in the printmaking medium, and this work stands as proof of his immense talent as a printmaker. Combining the printing techniques of etching, aquatint, and carborundum within a single print, Miró creates a richly textured and boldly colored masterpiece. As its title suggests, this work emanates with a warmth and energy that is sure to brighten the spirits of those who view it. Soleil Ébouillanté (The Scalding Sun) is representative of Miró at his best, and as such, it is one of the most desirable and awe-inspiring prints of his artistic oeuvre.
Created in 1969, this etching and aquatint with carborundum is hand signed in pencil by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 - Palma, 1983) in the lower right and numbered from the edition of 75 in pencil in the lower left (from the total edition of 75 numbered and signed prints plus some artist's proofs).
