Derrière le Miroir was a French art magazine created in 1946 and published by Aime Maeght until 1982. Art galleries, auction houses and booksellers often refer to this art magazine simply as D.L.M. or DLM
This edition of Derreier La Mirior was completely dedicated to Alexander Calder and was published on the occasion of his exhibition at Gallery Maeght in Paris in 1975.
*An original fine art lithograph is not just a cheap mass produced print. The process is far more complicated and therefore valuable and collectible. In short, Lithography is a method of printing using a stone (lithographic limestone) or a metal plate with a completely smooth surface to which the design & ink is applied. A limited edition lithograph is an original graphic created by the artist in a small print edition or run.
The process of printmaking requires a balance of creativity and skill using traditional techniques. It’s the amount of impressions 'pulled' from each 'plate' or stone that gives each print its scarcity.
Because of the unique history of each item, collectible prints often appreciate in value over time due to their rarity and age. This makes them an excellent investment.
