Allowing us to find our own meaning within its playful imagery, La Femme Arborescente exemplifies Miró's immense talent as a printmaker. Bold, vertical black lines anchor the center of the composition against a delicately splattered background. Vibrant patches of blue, green, yellow, and red dance around these black lines, suggesting the figures of a tree and a woman. Each viewer witnesses something different in this mysterious work, contributing to its mystery. One of Miró's larger prints, its grandiose size commands the attention of a room. We find it difficult to focus on a single component of this wonderfully captivating work, as each figure appears strikingly unique yet interacts perfectly with those around it.
