Inherent within this masterful composition is a sense of controlled chaos, with a series of colored, grid-like patterns that explode in a myriad of curved lines and spotted forms. Primary colors of red, blue, and yellow dominate the composition with accenting tones of green, purple, and orange. Each gesture is a deliberate complement to each line and shape, making way for a whimsical, playful piece into which Miró has breathed a life of its own.
Created in 1975, this work is one of a series of 22 lithographs by Joan Miró to illustrate the book, Maravillas con Variaciones Acrósticas en El Jardín de Miró by Rafael Alberti.
