"Le Grand Ordinateur" is another masterpiece from the prolific oeuvre of Joan Miro. Created in his mature stage in the late 1960s, this work gives out confidence in style and composition, and highlights the most recognizable traits of the artist's visual language. Translated as "The Great Computer", this etching is more conceptual than abstract, clearly referring to the advances in technology that were happening at the time. As a highly coveted collectable, this print has been made in a limited edition series of 75, and it has been performing excellently. Miro's printed body of work reached its highest point in late 1960s, after the artist was introduced to carborundum (silicon carbide engraving) technique in 1967.This innovative process is actually an advanced etching technique, which requires the use of an abrasive ground (carborundum) added to the etching plate to create a granulated or textured surface. Joan Miro found that by combining this new technique with other etching methods, especially aquatint, he could create images to rival any painting, thereby elevating the art of printmaking above mere reproduction. Carborundum prints created from 1967 through 1969 set an unprecedented standard for quality and set the ground for a fruitful printmaking period in Joan Miro's career. Museum of Modern Art in New York recognized the progressive nature of this specific series of carborundum prints, dedicating an entire exhibition to them in 1970, titled Joan Miro: Fifty Recent Prints.
