This color lithograph is Plate VIII from "Le Lézard aux Plumes d'Or," a series of 15 prints Miró published in 1971 to illustrate his poem of the same name. The illustrated book was a departure for Miro, who only occasionally worked with the written word although he enjoyed poetry and had many writer friends. Miro recorded the text in a journal in the late 1930's, later publishing it in 1945 in the magazine "Cahiers d'Art" under the heading "Jeux poétiques." The illustrated version of the poem came 26 years later.
