Taking Joan Miro's notorious declaration of 1927--"I want to assassinate painting"--as its point of departure, this richly illustrated volume is the first to focus on Miro the "anti-painter," identifying the core practices and strategies the artist used to challenge painting between 1927 and 1937. Joan Miro: Painting and Anti-Painting 1927-1937 surveys the various material, iconographical and rhetorical forms of Miro's attacks on painting by presenting, in chronological sequence, 12 distinct series of works, beginning with a remarkable group of paintings on unprimed canvas and concluding with Miro's return to Realism in "Still Life with Old Shoe" (1937)

"A key figure in XX-century art, Joan Miro has left us a definitive oeuvre which continues to reach an ever increasingly wide public. Ten years after his death, and on the occasion of the centenary of his birth, publication was inevitable of a major monograph on his work." "This book is a partial re-compilation of the analyses contained in the author's first far-reaching study of Joan Miro, which appeared in 1961, now considerably reworked and enriched. It takes into account not only the painter's output during the last two decades of his life, but also a great number of documents discovered after his death - projects, sketchpads, texts, correspondence - to which Jacques Dupin has had access thanks to his privileged relationship with Miro's family, and the studies by art historians and exhibition organizers published over the last twenty years." "Far from limiting his analysis to the painting of Miro, Dupin has gone much further by including the almost infinite universe of curiosities. Thus he examines the artist's experiments in such divers fields as sculpture, lithography, book illustration, ceramics, mural painting, and stage and costume design. A passionate creator in the world of the plastic arts, and an equally passionate lover of the word, of the most audacious poetical games, of objects and of the naked truth of materials, Miro also shone as an oneiric artist, in pursuit of the constellations which inspired some of his finest canvases. All of these fascinating artistic adventures are here narrated with fraternal complicity by Jacques Dupin."--BOOK JACKET
Miró : the experience of seeing : late works, 1963-1981 by Joan Miró( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This groundbreaking publication offers a reassessment of renowned modernist Joan Miró's late-career works, created between 1963 and 1981. This body of work, almost entirely unknown in the United States, showcases Miró's exceptional ingenuity as both a painter and sculptor. Miró: The Experience of Seeing includes color illustrations of nearly 50 paintings, drawings, and sculptures that show the breadth and contrast of this body of work-from bold, colorful canvases with expressive gestures to the most minimal calligraphic markings on white fields. His sculptures made of found objects are a revelation. Comparisons between paintings and sculptures highlight startling connections between shapes and symbols that Miró; used in each medium. These mature works represent the culmination of the artist's development of an innovative and personal visual language. Engaging texts, including a contribution by noted Spanish filmmaker Pere Portabella, explain Miró's role as a political figure and his quest to speak about the most intangible subjects through the materiality of objects and the painted gesture. This important new examination of Miró's later work allows for a richer, deeper understanding of this significant modern artist's distinguished career."
