9783791327853: Joan Miro: Snail Woman Flower Star

Tracing Miro' s career, this book begins in the 1920s with the artist's introduction to surrealism, cubism, and dadaism, and the flowering of his friendships with Picasso, Braque and other influential artists and poets. It moves on to his creation of an iconographic pictorial style, which reached maturity in the 1940s and forever distinguished Miro from his contemporaries. Nearly one hundred of his greatest works reproduced in this book display the artistic range of this lyrical painter, whose brilliant use of color, line, and shape resulted in haunting compositions. Fascinating photographs depict the artist at various stages of his life and perceptive essays about his work round out this exciting perspective of the world as portrayed in Miro' s art.
