MIRO Joan (1893-1983)
Signed correspondence addressed to Thomas and Diane BOUCHARD [1949-1976], in French, about 40 signed autograph letters, most of them in-4 format, 26 envelopes preserved, postcards and typewritten letters, as well as greeting cards, most of them illustrated with original lithographs signed by Miró. Autograph correspondence in French of Joan Miró from the estate of Thomas and Diane Bouchard. In an autograph letter there is a beautiful original drawing in ink by Miró, several autograph pages and a small 11-page oblong in-16 notebook containing Miró's autograph indications addressed to Bouchard for the films. Also included are letters signed by Walter Gropius, Joan Prats, Pierre Matisse, Edgar Varése, Maeght, Artega and a typed document signed by Ernest Hemingway. Exceptional archive on the films made by Thomas and Diane Bouchard: "About Joan Miró", which testifies to the friendship of the artist, who was from the outset enthusiastic about the idea of a film about him and his art. Miró sent several letters to Bouchard to give ideas and express his priorities: "The importance of some of my early paintings". He insisted in 3 letters that Bouchard contact Ernest Hemingway who owns his painting entitled "The Farm"... "which is a capital piece in my work". It will appear in the film with Hemingway (at the 37th minute). Miró suggests that the film should become a feature film, he gives Bouchard the contact details of all his friends that he should involve in the project, such as Michel Leiris, whom Miró wants as a commentator. - PREVERT Jacques.
