Contains: Mon fiancé est une idée saugrenue. Tous les couleurs du soir lilas. Au printemps il se pare d'une notion nuptiale importée d'Ègypte. Si le chant et la parade suffisent pas. Devant mon aile droite couve le morne militaire. Je suis un être oisif. La carte du monde tourne en dérision. Nous sommes la somme de nos envergures. [AW].

• The bird is a recurring key motif in the works of the great surrealist
• Reduced and expressive pictorial language
