Historical Description:
Strong colors of reds, blues, and yellows in circles, splotches, and rectangles meet our gaze in this fascinating look into the imagination of Miró. As strong black outlines denote a rather interesting creature that's not quite human or animal, a jovial and carefree mood comes over us as we take in the creature's pleasure of its equally strange surroundings.

Created in 1972, this color lithograph is one in a series of eleven lithographs created to illustrate the text by Michel Leiris. Hand-signed by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 - Palma, 1983) in pencil in the lower right, this work is annotated H.C. (Hors de Commerce) in pencil in the lower left. Printed by Mourlot, Paris, this work is an artist proof aside from the signed and numbered edition of 150 and the edition of 80 printed with wide margins, signed and numbered with Roman numerals.
