Note: This was part of a series of large colourful etchings which Miro made in the later 1960’s. Many collectors consider these as amongst his finest graphic works.Miró's La Sorcière is a monumental piece whose abstract, forms work in combination with splashes of green and red; each element coexists in perfect harmony, echoing a geometric, surrealist composition that leaves us both bewildered and amazed. The whimsical, central figure appears as if raising its arms, perhaps summonsing supernatural powers. Around this sorcerer, a stream of green, reminiscent of smoke, slithers up, perhaps the magic powers at hand. This is a Miró to be viewed in person, as its surface and textural quality cannot be duly translated through digital photography
