In 1947 a meeting between Paul Éluard and publisher Gérald Cramer led to a project for an illustrated book entitled “A toute épreve”. Éluard suggested that his friend Joan Miró should illustrate his poems. Cramer got in touch with Miró immediately.
This correspondence, which spanned almost thirty-five years, remains one of the tangible signs of this fruitful relationship. The hundreds of letters with prints and handwritten notes by Miró help reveal the artist’s creative process.
