Abstract:

Joan Miro (1893-1983) was a key figure in twentieth-century art, and one of the most engaging artists of our time. He left behind a remarkable legacy, a body of work that continues to reach an increasingly wide public today. Now, some ten years after his death, and to mark the centenary of his birth, this sumptuously illustrated volume offers new information and insights into Miro's long and extremely productive career.

Author Jacques Dupin has considerably revised and enriched his original far-reaching study of Joan Miro, published by Abrams in 1962.

He has taken 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, sketchbooks, texts, poems, correspondence (to which Dupin had privileged access through his relationship with Miro's family) - as well as studies by art historians and curators that have appeared over the last twenty years.

Far from limiting his analysis to the artist's painting, Dupin has explored the almost infinite universe of Miro's imagination. Thus he surveys the artist's experiments in such diverse 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 words, of the most audacious poetical games, Miro was an artist of the subconscious, constantly in pursuit of the dreams which inspired some of his finest canvases.

Nearly 500 illustrations, 200 in full color, reproduce works from every phase of Miro's career. An illustrated chronology, an extensive bibliography, and a list of exhibitions add to the value of this superb volume, an indispensable addition to the literature on modern art.
