Abstract:

"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."--Jacket.
