Decorative pillow case featuring a Surrealist painting of Joan Miró representing a man’s head
© Successió Miró Tete d’homme III” (1931)
Joan Punyet Miró (Miró “grandson) gave his explanation about this painting in an intimate interview: “It is the head of a man painted in a burlesque and abstract way, providing a more subversive and distant side of reality. There is a «musical expression» in Miró “brush strokes in this creative period: both soft and flat at the same time. We can read in this work a psychological and metaphysical interpretation; going beyond the human scope trespassing the limits of his imagination. It is an invitation into his unconscious.”
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.
