Following Miró’s original painting in 1918 'Still Life with Coffee Grinder,' this 1954 etching and aquatint, engraved by Visat, carries through the same experimentation with varied texture and modulation. The restrained color palette makes 'Le Moulin à Café' a significant departure from Miró’s other works.

Joan Miró (Spanish, 1893- 1983) was a prolific painter, printmaker, sculptor, and ceramicist. After a terrible attack of typhoid fever in 1911, the artist devoted his life entirely to painting. Miró’s early works reflected the influences of Catalonian art and Roman frescos but slowly developed to surrealist painting, a re-creation of the childlike and a manifestation of Catalan pride, which is recognizable throughout the art world. His influence is far reaching, inspiring the art of the American abstract expressionist artists such as Calder, Pollock, and Rothko.
