Joan Miro

By Joan Miro

Our Price: $10.95
Considered one of the great artists of the 20th century Joan Miro has bequeathed a definitive body of work whose influence continues to grow over the years. Miro did not paint dreams but instead, through his works, provided the spectator with certain elements so that he would be the one that dreamed. He never worked under the influence of hypnosis, drugs or alcohol. Nevertheless, his artistic personality and the way he represented on canvas what inspiration dictated to him led Andre Breton to exclaim, ”Miro is the most surrealist of us all!” A creative force in the plastic field who felt an equal passion for the world, for the most daring poetic p-lays, a lover of objects and the bare truth of materials, Miro always revealed himself as an oneiric artist, a seeker after the constellations that inspired some of his finest works. With Jacques Dupin’s seminal essay in Miro, “The Birth of Signs”. Chronology, Bibliography. 78 illustratios.
