Bold black lines delineate vibrant patches of red, yellow, and blue in this captivating work. This piece appears as if watching us, as we witness red and yellow eyes gazing out. This work relays the impression that the observer is also the observed, breathing a sense of life into Miró's abstract forms. Beneath this playful figure, we witness the text 'Miro…' Even the letters that spell Miró's name appear as animated figures, instilled with a sense of liveliness. In his own whimsical font, Miró pays homage to himself in this delightful piece.
