Hailed as one of the foremost important surrealists of the 20th century, Joan Miró's work has been interpreted as having a 2-dimensional quality that projects a childlike air, while exhibiting an inherent Spanish and Catalonian pride. Nowhere can this interpretation be seen more clearly than in this original color etching and aquatint with hand-applied paint.
This work features the "rocket bird" in the lower left, poised as if ready for takeoff against a starry sky. Contrasting hues of bronzes and browns are complimented by red, green, blue, and black accents which are both bold in color and rich in depth. Miró challenges us to delve deep into our imagination and perhaps even into our subconscious as he transforms this piece into a beautiful, surrealist work slowly revealed and developed to its audience.
Created in 1952, this original color etching and aquatint with hand-applied paint (pochoir) is hand-signed by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 - Palma, 1983) in pencil in the lower right margin and numbered 4/200 (from the edition of 200) in pencil in the lower left margin.
