About Joan Miro Pencil Case – RMN-Grand Palais – Blue II-III Triptych (1961)
This 100% cotton Joan Miro Pencil Case, designed in Spain and made in the U.K by Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais features one of the most notorious works by the Spanish Surrealist artist, Joan Miró, “Blue I-III” (Triptych) made in 1961. This 100% Miro Blue I-III pencil case is washable at or below 86ºF (30ºC). Joan Miro was a Spanish painter of the École de Paris trained at Barcelona and his early work showed the influence of Van Gogh and the Fauves. In 1919 he came to Paris and associated with Picasso and his Cubist followers. From c. 1923 he was among the most prominent of the Surrealists and over the years he evolved an easily recognizable style of great power and originality lying between Surrealist fantasy, abstractionist construction, and decorative arabesque. In 1918 André Breton wrote: “Miró is probably the most surrealist of us all.” Yet his work almost alone among the surrealists survived the disruption of that movement with development but no essential change.
