The condition of this piece has been graded as A: Mint. Here is some supplemental information about the Lithograph: Print from the portfolio La Melodie Acide which includes 14 lithographs on 13 x 10 inch arches paper, plate signed, and hand numbered out of 1500.
Melodie Acide (Acid Melody, 1980), has been reproduced as a series of 14 Lithographs within a catalogue raisonné. In this series, a single form provides the leading tone throughout each print. The forms are melodious and colorful, scribbled and swabbed – while balanced with the acidity of the lithography technique which sinks into the plate and gives rich form to the colors. Further, as we know Miro, there is a fresh and simple balance between the striking colors and the dark, between the thickness of the black swabs of paint and the whimsical pencil curls, the attempt at geometry and the circular. These playful pieces are at once abstract and figurative.
