Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born near Barcelona in 1893, Joan Miro was admitted to the Academy of Fine Arts in Barcelona at the age of 14. Before 1920, his work shows wide-ranging influences, including the bright colors of the Fauves, the broken form of Cubism, and the powerful two-dimensionality of the Catalan folk art of his native Spain. In 1920, he settled in Paris where he met Picasso and fell under the influence of the surrealist poets and writers. Miró drew on memory and fantasy to create works of art that are visual metaphors of surrealist poetry. The dreamlike visions have a whimsical or humorous quality, but also appeal to an art of the spirit. Miro; had a colossal output; during his 90 years he made at least 2,000 oil paintings, 500 sculptures, 400 ceramic objects, and 5,000 drawings and collages. Accompanied by images of the artist's greatest work.
