In an intimate interview, Joan Punyet Miró (Miró “grandson) explained that this painting expressed great strength, and is his favorite. It was painted four years after the triptych of the large Blue canvasses exhibited at the Pompidou Center. It is unique by its total detachment of the form. It is the return of dreamlike paintings, a freedom similar to the one we find in the American Abstract Expressionism of the 50´s.
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.
During the final years of his career, much of the work which Joan Miró created, took more of an interest on symbolism, and the message that was being portrayed, as opposed to the actual image, and the exact features which were created in these works. The eccentric style in which Joan created, is an embodiment of the unique approach he took not only to the work he created, but to the art world in general, and the many unique forms of art which he created during the course of his illustrious career. In these works, of which some very important examples are on show, the author reaches the absolute limits of the purification of painting, organizing poetic spaces where vibration, rhythm and emotion are key.
