Miró Maravillas Con Variaciones Acrósticas en El Jardín de Miró (Wonders with  Acrostic Variations in Mirós Garden), Pl. 9, 1975 is a color lithograph executed in his signature surrealist style. The image is composed of a series of brightly colored lines and circles, punctuated by thick, black streaks and dots. The stream of yellow in the upper register carries you from left to right across the canvas until you are pulled down into the body of the lithograph by the falling blue, and circling green. The multitude of colors and lines are playful, dancing the viewer around the canvas. The nonliteral use of these painting methods, instead seeking convey emotion, are a mark of Miró’s work.

This lithograph is part of a series of 22 lithographs by Miró that illustrated Rafael Alberti’s book, Maravillas Con Variaciones Acrósticas en El Jardín de Miró. The book was printed by La Polígrafa in Barcelona in 1975 and published by Ediciones Polígrafa S.A., Barcelona.

Created in 1975, this color lithograph on Arches paper with an Arches watermark is hand-signed by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 – Palma, 1983) in pencil in the lower right corner and numbered from the edition of 75 in pencil the lower left.
