Joan Miro: De essentie van voorbije en aanwezige dingen
BAm Mons & Snoeck, 2022
Behind the apparently childlike and innocent nature of Joan Miró’s work lies a deep connection to the Catalan tradition and the art of the past.
From his academic training to his first Fauvist landscapes or still lifes to the influence of Primitivism, Romanesque art or even Japanese calligraphy, “Joan Miró. The essence of things past and present” travels through more than half a century of raw, sometimes wild, but always unexpected experiments.
Some hundred original works are presented (paintings, gouaches, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, etc.), from prestigious international public and private collections, including the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró (Palma de Mallorca), the Fundació Joan Miró (Barcelona) , the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, the Picasso-Paris National Museum, the Maeght Foundation or the LaM.
