Les Troglodytes I, 1978, edition of 50 plus proofs, published by Maeght Éditeur, Paris (Dupin, 1009). Signed "Miró." in pencil l.r., numbered "48/50" in pencil l.l. Color etching with aquatint on paper, plate size 8 5/8 x 45 5/8 in. (21.8 x 115.7 cm), framed.
Condition: Mat burn, gentle rippling, not examined out of frame.

Provenance: A private Massachusetts collection.
Estimate $1,200-1,800

Framed dimensions: 28 x 63 1/2 inches. Mat burn to margins. Due to the size and nature of the work (and to reduce risk of handle marks and creases) the work has only been partially opened, but enough to determin that all 4 edges are deckled, and the sheet measures approximately 19 x 55 1/2 inches. It is NOT laid down. There is gentle toning to the image within the area of the mat opening.
