Original chalk and brush-drawn lithograph in colours. 1975. Signed in pencil. Numbered from the issued signed edition of 75 impressions (Total signed edition of 90). Drawn at Miró’s studio and edition printed at the studio of Ediciones Poligrafa, Barcelona, 1975. Note: The series of compositions drawn by Miró under the title ‘Maravillas’ was inspired by the poetry of Rafael Alberti. Alberti is considered one of the greatest Spanish literary figures of the so-called ‘Generation of 27’. He won numerous international accolades in the years before the Spanish Civil War. After the war he had to flee Spain because of his political beliefs, only returning after the death of Franco. His writing was greatly admired by Miró and other Spanish artists of his generation.Ref: Maeght – Miró Lithographs no 1070. Note: Apart from first signed edition, as above, there were also 90 impressions printed in black only but also signed. Separately there was an album edition of all the images in the series, not signed in pencil but with a printed signature - edition of 315.
