Extensive and captivating, Miró’s poetic style is displayed through gestural illustrations and graphic storytelling that sprawl across this intricate composition. This fantastical work was created to accompany a poem penned by the artist himself. Employing his inventive ingenious, Miró’s reptile transforms into a whimsical creature adorned with colorful decoration. Rhythmic patterns travel through a background of ephemerality, invoking a playful sense of narrative. A lyrical journey through the artist’s unending imagination, Le Lézard aux plumes d’or is magnificent work filled with mythological and surreal wonder.
