“I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.” – Miro

Indeed, this work could be read like a poem, each stroke and each color a new rhythm. Looking at this work closer, it tempts us to step closer, to decipher its narrative. The creature is decorated with colorful dots and grids, all of which are characteristic of the artist’s artistic language. Miro’s Le Lézard aux Plumes d’or exemplifies the beauty of surrealist story telling.

A superb impression with bright fresh colors in excellent condition. Full margins, as printed, with no visible signs of fading or damage. Includes gallery certificate guaranteeing authenticity as well as an opinion of authenticity report from noted art appraiser and expert Randee Miller.

Early in his career, Miró primarily painted still-lifes, landscapes, and genre scenes. Influences ranging from the folk art and Romanesque church frescoes of his native Catalan region in Spain to 17th-century Dutch realism were eventually superseded by more contemporary ones: Fauvism, Cubism, and Surrealism captivated the young artist, who had relocated to Paris in 1921. His exposure to the ideas of André Breton and Breton's Surrealist circle prompted Miró to make radical changes to his style, although the artist cannot be said to have identified consistently with a single school. Rather, his artistic career may be characterized as one of persistent experimentation and a lifelong flirtation with non-objectivity. Miró's signature biomorphic forms, geometric shapes, and semi-abstracted objects are expressed in multiple media, from ceramics and engravings to large bronze installations.
