From the collection of Louis Broder the publisher. The art publisher Louis Broder was active in the 20th century as a collaborator and publisher of many important graphic works. He commissioned artists such as Picasso Braque Jean Arp Jacques Villon Andre Masson and many others to create interpretations of literary works poems or conceptual ideas through a variety of media. His collaborations with Miro through the world famous Mourlot lithographic atelier in Paris created four historically significant and highly desirable suites of color lithographs in 1970 and 1971. Only a few examples of these works were offered initially through a gallery in Paris in the early 1970's and then only sporadically over the ensuing years. The remaining unsold examples were held by the estate after the death of Lous Broder for 35 years until Park West Gallery acquired the entire remaining collection."
