About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Gimferrer, Pere

From Library Journal:

In preparing this monumental work, Gimferrer ( De Chirico , Rizzoli, 1990; Toulouse-Lautrec , Rizzoli, 1989) spent many years studying the technical creation of 4,556 sketches and preparatory studies by Miro, worked through a mountain of documents collected by the Miro Foundation, and interviewed the artist extensively. Gimferrer's literary background as a critical essayist shines through as he lays open Miro's evolution and ties it to the broader accomplishments of modernism. The over 1200 carefully chosen reproductions combined with the text brilliantly elucidate Miro's artistic innovations. The scholarly methodology employed here is destined to have a positive impact on art historical investigation. Essential for research libraries and specialized collections covering 20th-century painting.
