Flitting horizontally across the piece, delicate black lines twist and turn. Joan Miró Lithograph VII from Miró, Obra Inedita Recent, 1964 utilizes a subdued color palette of softened greens, yellows, and browns to highlight the exquisite pattern of these swirling black forms. Despite the somewhat topsy-turvy nature of the piece, the forms retain a sense of order and balance as they line up horizontally across the page and gently guide the viewer's eye across the surface, highlighted with patches of color.
