About the WorkJoan Miró signature biomorphic forms, geometric shapes, and semi-abstracted objects are expressed in multiple media, from ceramics and engravings to large bronze installations. Untitled (D.1289 and D.1290) is a wood engraving. The image size is 13 x 20 — inches.
Miró often worked with a limited palette, yet the colors he used were bold and expressive. Miró’s work is found in collections all around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Britain, and the Reina Sofia in Madrid, among others. Miró’s mature style evolved from the tension between his fanciful, impulsive behavior and the harsh reality of modern life. He worked extensively in lithography and produced and array of murals, tapestries, and sculptures for public spaces. Despite his fame, Miró, an introvert, continued to devote himself exclusively to looking and creating.
Miró balanced the kind of spontaneity and automatism encouraged by the Surrealists with meticulous planning and rendering to achieve finished works that, because of their precision, seemed plausibly representational despite their high level of abstraction.
About the Artist
Joan Miró is regarded as one of the most original artists of the 20th century, who often worked with a limited palette, yet the colors he used were bold and expressive. His mature style evolved from the tension between his fanciful, poetic impulse and his vision of the harshness of modern life. Miró worked extensively in lithography and produced many murals, tapestries, and sculptures for public spaces. Despite his fame, he continued to devote himself exclusively to looking and creating. Joan Miró was born in Barcelona, Spain on April 20, 1893. His father was an artisan watchmaker and goldsmith. Based on his parents’ wishes, Miró attended a commercial college, then found work as a clerk in an office for a short period of time. Unfulfilled by his profession, Miró asked for his parent’s permission to allow him to attend art school in Barcelona in 1912. There, he gained great experience learning under Francisco Galí.
