This color etching is the product of collaboration between the artist Joan Miró and writer Xavier Domingo. Dating to an especially fruitful period near the end of his life, this work also bears comparison to his contemporary large-scale paintings. In this work, delicate etched lines lead the eye in different directions across the sheet. The luminous orbs of color that the artist loves to create with aquatint add a fantastic dimension to the composition.
