Catalogue Note

This work was executed in 1956 for the book Bagatelles Végétales by Michel Leiris published in 1956 by Jean Aubier. Born from a close collaboration between the three men, and considered as one of the finest illustrated book of the twentieth century, this book confronts Miro’s poetic works with the imaginative texts of Leiris, who plays around with words and creates a new language.
