Joan Miró

Text by Rosa Maria Malet.

Featured image, Joan Miró's <i>Catalan Landscape (The Hunter)</i>, 1923-1924, is reproduced from <a href="9788434310230.html">Joan Miró</a>.This affordably priced monograph provides an ideal introduction to the joyful visual world of Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the twentieth century's greatest and most beloved artists, whose pictorial language--for once the right term--was appropriated by a gamut of modernist causes and avant gardes, from Art Brut and the espousers of children's art to Surrealism (André Breton called him “the most Surrealist of us all” ), practitioners of automatism and even Color Field painting. In over 100 color plates, this book surveys not only the paintings for which Miró is most famed, but also his equally innovative experiments in other realms, such as ceramics, sculpture, editions, printmaking, tapestry (including the “World Trade Center Tapestry” which was sadly destroyed on September 11) and stage design for Diaghilev, among others. Miró's contagious sense of play and pleasure in materials is perfectly represented in this introductory volume.

FROM THE BOOK
"Joan Miró did not paint dreams, but through his work he placed within the viewer's reach certain elements that would make the viewer the one who dreamt. Miró never worked under the influence of hypnosis, drugs or alcohol. His life--like his work--was always methodological and orderly, but his artistic personality, his way of representing on canvas everything that his inspiration dictates to him, led André Breton to exclaim: 'Miró is the most Surrealist of us all!'"

Rosa Maria Malet, excerpted from the text to Joan Miró.
