Why We Love This

An original lithograph printed in colors on Rives wove paper.This is a superb impression of the definitive state, from the album edition of 195 (apart from the pencil-signed and numbered deluxe edition). One of fifteen color lithographs illustrating the text Le Lezard aux Plumes d’Or, a series of the artist’s own poems. Published by Louis Broder, Paris; printed at Atelier Fernand Mourlot, Paris. In 1967, Miró produced 18 color lithographs to accompany his poem Le lézard aux plumes d’or. These lithographs were to have been published in volumes illustrating the poem. Shortly after the printing of the plates, the artist and his publisher, Louis Broder, noticed that an error in the manufacturing of the paper had caused certain alterations in the colors. They therefore decided not to accept the printing of these volumes and to have them destroyed. Since the lithographic plates had already been erased, it was necessary for Miró to produce a whole new series of lithographs in order to complete this project. These new lithographs were drawn and published as originally intended in 1971 under the same title. This lithograph is from the second, later set.
