About this title


Published to accompany a centennial exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, from October 1993 through early January 1994, this intensively researched volume contains more than 250 full-color reproductions that explore the entire range of the artist's career.

From Booklist:

The current Joan Mir{¢}o retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art rivals last year's Matisse show for excitement and revelation. Once again, the museum has inspired fresh appreciation for the work of a modern master. This volume, published in conjunction with the exhibition, is a masterpiece in its own right, with splendid color reproductions of more than 250 paintings, drawings, collages, and sculptures. Lanchner's shrewd commentary draws upon a wealth of sources, including letters, notebooks, the writings of Mir{¢}o's contemporaries, and numerous working drawings, and culminates in a lucid reexamination of Mir{¢}o's lifework by emphasizing the logistics of his creative processes, particularly his penchant for working in series. Mir{¢}o was disciplined, systematic, and prolific. He possessed a remarkable facility for materials and surface, but his craftsmanlike approach never kept him from expressing his unique and joyful lyricism. As Mir{¢}o moved from representative paintings into the free associations of abstraction, his work retained a marvelous sense of animation and vitality. His palette is lush and mysterious, his doodley lines both electric and graceful. One of the highlights of this retrospective is the beautifully poetic Constellation series (1940-41), in which highly symbolic birds, women, eyes, stars, and spirals float across radiant, otherworldly skies. An illustrated chronology and a complete catalog follow the plates. Donna Seaman
