Historical Description

This bright and lively work was originally created for a poster showcasing Miró's works at the Galleria del Milione, Milan. Bold colors, lively imagery, and vivid spontaneity are standard to Miró's iconic works, and this piece is no exception. The central form, reminiscent of a musical note, appears alive with energy. One can clearly witness the exuberance of Miró's bold strokes in the circular formations at the center, which retain a painterly quality. Miró's curious shapes and figures frolic about the composition and even his name at the bottom appears as if in motion, whimsically conveyed in his unique style.

Created in 1969, this original color lithograph is hand signed with Miró's monogram in the lower right margin in pencil by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 - Palma, 1983). This work is numbered from the edition of 200 in pencil in the lower left. This work was published and printed by Poligrafa, Barcelona..
