New questions

The discoveries described in this article show how small clues can lead to new questions and to new research. A note in Oud’s hand on the invoice from De Porceleyne Fles for the production of the tiles raises a new question: he reminds Appel to design two carpets for the De Utrecht office building in Rotterdam.Ibid. This makes us curious about the further collaboration between Oud and Appel. Although it is not certain whether the sketches found in the archive were actually made by Miró, the correspondence has answered many questions about the creation of the ceramic mural.
