This work belongs to the oeniric-erotic surrealist period that Puigmarti develops between the 60’s and 80’s of the 20th century.

During this stage, the oeniric element that is always repeated is the female nude. In this work, the artist displays his own iconographic world. Thus we find fruits, eyelashes on the character’s eye, a top hat, clothing and wrinkled lace embroideries, and a multitude of female breasts placed, apparently, at random.

We also find certain decorative elements made automatically that give the work a very dynamic vision.

On a technical level, the smoothness with which the artist has painted the character’s skin, and the glazes and transparencies that he has achieved, is very remarkable.
