A small world, but a universe nonetheless
Petit univers (Small Universe), the subtitle of this vibrantly colorful composition by Joan Mirò, describes a small world that is nonetheless complete. A slender mermaid, a fish leaping high in the air, a seal and a sprinkling of stars have briefly come together between water and sky. Together they constitute a small universe, if only for a moment. Thanks to the high quality of the reproduction, Miró’s luminous gouache colors are just as captivating in the poster.
