For over ten years, Miro, the Spanish artist, and Paul Eluard, whose text was inspired by Catalan Spain, worked together to create a unique book: in their own words, a masterpiece of "Plastic harmony."

Its title roughly translatable as "Ready for Anything, " A Toute Epreuve achieves Miro's own ambition for the project, stated in 1948: "I hope to create something sensational."
