Heightened in watercolour, ink and pastel by the artist . One of 30 copies with original hand colouring by Miro. This example has extensive additions, with a blue background to the text, the artist's fingerprints in red and black, ink line drawings to the lithograph, as well as brightly coloured dots to the justification. The artist decorated the thirty examples with different illustrations, making them each unique but retained some similar elements such as the red dots and line drawings.

René Char and Joan Miro had met during the Surrealist period, but their friendship dated from the post-war years when Miro returned to France. L'Alouette is their third collaborative work. A notably scarce work even for unsigned examples both on the market and institutionally. There are only two copies in libraries, at Yale University and the Bibliothèque nationale de France.

Limited edition, one of 30 copies hand coloured by Miro, signed by the author and the artist on the verso, from a total edition of 100; one leaf, unfolded, small oblong 4to (11 x 27 cm), lithograph heightened with watercolour, pastel and india ink on wove paper, lower right corner slightly creased, otherwise in excellent condition.
