Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This groundbreaking publication offers a reassessment of renowned modernist Joan Mirand#243;and#8217;s late-career works, created between 1963 and 1981. This body of work, almost entirely unknown in the United States, showcases Mirand#243;and#8217;s exceptional ingenuity as both a painter and sculptor.

and#160;

Mirand#243;: The Experience of Seeing includes color illustrations of nearly 50 paintings, drawings, and sculptures that show the breadth and contrast of this body of workand#151;from bold, colorful canvases with expressive gestures to the most minimal calligraphic markings on white fields. His sculptures made of found objects are a revelation. Comparisons between paintings and sculptures highlight startling connections between shapes and symbols that Mirand#243; used in each medium. These mature works represent the culmination of the artistand#8217;s development of an innovative and personal visual language. Engaging texts, including a contribution by noted Spanish filmmaker Pere Portabella, explain Mirand#243;and#8217;s role as a political figure and his quest to speak about the most intangible subjects through the materiality of objects and the painted gesture. This important new examination of Mirand#243;and#8217;s later work allows for a richer, deeper understanding of this significant modern artistand#8217;s distinguished career.
