Miró - Exhibition catalog

Joan Miró is rightly considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Whether it is a sign, a colour, Miró brings out a poetic universe full of metamorphoses. Friend of many poets from Apollinaire to Jacques Prévert, he is very attracted by all forms of poetry. The surrealist manifesto will have great importance in his pictorial research. He considered that the dream is the expression of deep impulses that he could transcribe into an artistic form, a happy juxtaposition between reality and unreality.

The chronological journey of the artist's life over seven decades is retraced here: paintings, drawings, ceramics and sculptures rub shoulders in order to highlight an itinerary and a technical and stylistic evolution marked by incessant renewal (expressionist, retailer, surrealist, wild...). An anthology of prose texts and poems written by the poets with whom the artist was constantly associated, Louis Aragon, Tristan Tzara, Max Jacob, René Char, Jacques Dupin, accompanies this visual journey.
The catalogue thus (re)discovers the immense and varied creation of Joan Miró, a painter committed to all the important questions of the 20th century.

The exhibition Miró is on display at the Galeries nationales du Grand Palais from October 3, 2018 to February 4, 2019
