signé Miró (en bas vers là droite); signé Miró, daté 4/IX/73, titré oiseau dans la nuit et signé de l'initiale M. (au dos)

huile, gouache et fusain sur carton

The cardboard is stable. All corners are scuffed and there is a minor loss to the extreme upper left corner, probably inherent to the artistic process. There is a small hole to the upper right quadrant, probably inherent to the artistic process. There is a line of paper skinning, inherent to the medium, running across the composition from the upper part of the left edge to the right part of the lower edge. There are a few spots of discolouration in places, possibly humidity marks, the largest of which is located to the centre of the upper edge (as visible in the catalogue illustration) and associated with a small accretion. There are two labels on the verso (as visible in the catalogue illustration). There are a few tiny flecks of paint losses to the oil and gouache. There are a few faint media marks in places. The cardboard is slightly light stained. This work is in overall very good condition.
