This group of Métamorphose collage-drawings was created during a brief interlude while Miró was working on his celebrated series of paintings on copper and Masonite. Jacques Dupin wrote about Miró’s works from this period: ‘The premonition, the foreshadowing of the Spanish civil war, as well as the horrors of the Nazis and Franco drastically changed his manner of painting and drawing. Fear and cruelty took over his forms and colors. Deformations were pronounced to the point of metamorphosis. Monstrous beings unfurled and blossomed in an exacerbated eroticism […].Miró’s monsters did not come from elsewhere they were not taken from some distant or legendary mythology, but rather were transmuted excerpts from the close at hand and familiar’ (J. Dupin, op. cit., p. 11).
