Although this large sheet — which wonderfully combines Miró’s naive and whimsical motifs and colours — dates from the early 1950s, it was not shown to the public until the early 1980s, just like the other works in this series. In 1982, the full collection was exhibited at the Perls Gallery in New York. Writing in the New York Times, John Russell hailed it a success: “The radiance of the color, the energy of the drawing and the freedom of the invention make these paintings a joy to look at if we have never heard of Alfred Jarry and regard General Franco as a fabulous monster, long forgotten" (John Russell, "Critics' Choices" in The New York Times, April 11, 1982, p. 3).
