Presumably not genuine

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a serigraph on wove paper after Miro´s painting from 1950 "mujer ante el sol" or "woman standing in front of the sun". These prints with printed signature usually sell within the price range of 40-60 USD. This is a piece of decorative wall art and as such pleasant to look at, but the reproduced signature might deceive and I would therefore have to put it in the category "not authentic".

i don't know that much about serigraph printing but wouldn't i see little dots

No, serigraph screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to press ink onto, in most cases, paper, except in areas made impermeable to the ink. Once the ink is pressed through this very fine mesh it shows up as a very even patch of colour. Only offset printing shows little dots.
