Miró gives us the progression of the same subject, a single man, over the various phases of the moon which in turn inspires his imagination and creativity.  These two works exhibit the culmination of this overall experience.

L’oiseau migrateur “The Migratory Bird” (M655) is one of a series of five lithographs created as part of L’oiseau migrateur fuyant l’éclipse (‘The Migratory Bird Fleeing the Eclipse’) in 1970.  Inspired and conceived for Louis Broder.  This work was printed and published in Paris by Broder éditeur and Mourlot imprimeur on Rives watermarked paper.  Numbered 74/75 in pencil in the lower left margin and hand signed by Joan Miró (1893 – 1983) in pencil in the lower right margin.
