John Miro lithographs and sketches are at Galerie Lareuse in Washington.

Miro and Calder

If you've been drooling over the Miro and Calder show at the Phillips Collection, prepare your checkbooks. Lithographs and sketches by these two artists are for sale at Galerie Lareuse in Washington.

The gallery exhibit pairs the work of Spanish surrealist superstar Joan Miro with prolific American sculptor Alexander Calder. The artists met in 1928, became friends and influenced each other throughout their careers.

Of course, great works by great artists will cost. Prices range from $1,200 to $35,000. The works will be at the gallery through Jan. 15.

Galerie Lareuse is at 2820 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W. in Washington. Call 202-333-1506. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays and by appointment.
