This biomorphic representation of a person in bright colors is reminiscent of Miró's early paintings. It is simpler and the figure larger, however. Miró began creating lithographs fairly late in his career- he produced his first color lithographs in 1948. Throughout his career, Miró worked with a variety of mediums, and he was a painter, printmaker, and ceramicist. In 1970, Miró created a Personnage sculpture whose figure resembles the one in this print.
This print shows a figure with a blue body, black head, blue arms, and one black leg and foot and one orange leg and foot in a boneless depiction which resembles the style of a child. There is an orange circle to the right of the figure. A black rectangular outline surrounds the figure and the circle.Primary Object ClassificationPrintCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
