Peinture (Escargot, femme, fleur, étoile) (Painting [Snail, Woman, Flower, Star]) combines Miró's characteristic linear graphics with a series of powerful coloured patches. The various Surreal-looking figures are all part of a process of imminent metamorphosis, yet their deformed limbs are in stark contrast to the lyricism and poetry of the written words introduced into the picture as part of the composition, which give the painting its name.
