Decorative pillow case featuring a Surrealist painting of Joan Miró representing a woman, a bird and a star
© Successió Miró Femme, Oiseau, Etoile – Extrait 2″ (1966-73)
Miró was a Spanish painter that combined abstract art with Surrealist fantasy to create his lithographs, murals, tapestries, and sculptures. His mature style evolved from the tension between his fanciful, poetic impulse and his vision of the harshness of modern life.
In spite of his fame, Miró, an introvert, continued to devote himself exclusively to looking and creating.
This painting is an homage to Picasso in which references to figurative art are evident and sharply appear in the figure outlined on a white background, also standing out in the contrast of the planes of color, which act as an independent and not mimetic component of the work.The composition focuses on the three essential figures of Miró “symbolism: the woman, which refers to the link of human beings and their roots in the land, together with the bird and the star that symbolise poetic and spiritual attraction, and which are shown on either side of the central figure. Moreover, it is defined by the force of the white background, which is treated with all the richness and complexity that the quality of the material and the skill of its execution permit. On this bright background the great female figure emerges, with broad shapes akin to Neolithic sculptures and constructed as a giant collage of flat colors.
