Remarks

In some publications, this piece is reproduced vertically and has a green bucket attached to it. However, at the time that the Obra de Joan Miró catalogue was produced (Fundació Joan Miró, 1979), Miró stated that the horizontal position was the appropriate one and made no reference to the disappearance of the bucket, of which only a small piece of plastic remains. This seems to suggest that the artist may have reworked the piece at a later date. (See Pierre Matisse and His Artists, New York, The Pierpont Morgan Library, 14 February - 19 May 2002, p. 275)
