    I had to research Miro for 9th grade Spanish class, and found this particular painting bizarre. I stared at it for a long time, wondering about the dots and the line (were they mistakes? Was there a hair and some dust on the copy when the book was printed?). Then I saw the title, and I laughed hysterically. It’s the first painting that I saw where the personality and humor of the artist came through.
