1968 Derriere le Miroir no.173 Alexander Calder

Derriere le Miroir (DLM) No. 125-126, Joan Miro Lithograph

Welcome to Scorpio Collections!  The volume you’ve selected is a first edition of the prestigious Derrière le Miroir (DLM) art magazine, published in Paris from 1946 to 1983.  Each volume combines the original and reproduction lithographs of a particular artist with prose and poetry by contemporary writers.  The magazine was not bound, but rather featured loose prints and pages of text in a soft-cover lithograph wrapping.  All volumes were published by Maeght Editeur, Paris.



Derrière le Miroir’s 36 years of publication saw the many of the 20th century’s greatest artists submit their works to the magazine. Each issue of the magazine featured one artist’s original lithograph along with multiple reproductions. Their works were set alongside the poetry of France’s great writers of the same period. Artists featured include Braque, Calder, Chagall, Chillida, Giacometti, Léger, Matisse, Miro and Tapies. That their works were juxtaposed to the writings of such great thinkers as Aragon, Beckett, Char, Eluard, Prévert, Queneau, Reverdy and Sartre, ensured that the magazine would find itself a special place in the annals of art publications as the cross-roads of art both visual and verbal.
