About The Work

Le lézard aux plumes d'or is an original poem by Miró, conceived on the harmonious alternation of verses and colorful images that underlie the magical relationship between man and nature. A first series of 18 lithographed plates dates back to 1967, where the line is lighter and the colors are clear and bright. Later, the Catalan artist and the publisher Louis Broder realized the alteration of colors, caused by a defect in the paper factory, forcing them to abandon the run to make new compositions on Rives paper and mother-of-pearl Japan paper, appearing in 1971 with the same title. Since 1960, the works of the Catalan artist have been animated with surreal creatures that float in space, bathing in shining light. The work reproduces the poem in lithographic printing entirely, and includes 15 colored lithographs and 23 pages of text that reproduce the handwriting of Miró: this process maintains a perfect balance between the force of graphism and the visual effect of images, built with thick contour lines. At the end of 1971, the poem for images was presented at the Berggruen Gallery in Paris and at the Galerie Pierre in Stockholm.
