MIRO: The Experience of Seeing, Late Works 1963-1981

SEATTLE ART MUSEUM    Book Number: 80894    Product format: Hardback

Joan Miró was born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1893, and was a leader in the abstract form. In the 1920s he was at the centre of the evolution of the modern art connected to the Parisian avant-garde. This book covers his later works and covers an exhibition held at the Seattle Art Museum which was intended to introduce American audiences to Miró's later works, and was drawn from the Museo National Centro de Art Reina Sofia in Madrid. All Miró's works are intriguing, whether paintings, drawings or sculptures. His 'Femme Oiseau (Woman Bird), in ink and oil, is reminiscent of an early cave painting, while his patinated bronzes are quirky and exciting. The colour tones in his gouache paintings such as 'Personage' 1977, which uses muted shades of blues, greens and browns, are superb, while at the other end of the scale his 'woman, bird and star' (homage to Picasso) screams from the page with its vibrant primary colours. Text includes appraisals of Miró by various experts, as well as a timeline. No dust jacket, 23.5 x 27.9cm, 104pp. colour illus.
