Decorative pillow case featuring a surrealist painting of Joan Miró© Successió Miró Peinture” (1931)
In an intimate interview, Joan Punyet Miró (Miró’s grandson) explained that this picture was painted when his mother was only one year old. At that time, Miró had just finished creating the sets and costumes for the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo “Jeux d’enfants by Georges Bizet. This painting is like a piano score. It reveals dramatic, but very colorful scenes with an intensity specific to Miró “paintings. We can perceive the presence of a man and a woman dancing in the form of horizontal and vertical abstract lines: an expression of the artist “imagination. The touch of the paintbrush is black and round but flattened, creating a geometric vocabulary very similar to Mondrian. We are close to the freedom of the Surrealists.
Miró was a Catalan artist from Spain that combined abstract art with Surrealist fantasy to create his lithographs, murals, tapestries, and sculptures. His mature approach 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.
