Miró

French langage

Of perhaps the purest surrealism, the dreamlike visions of Miró as a "painter-poet" disconcerted his surrealist friends - they were understood more by the dissidents of the movement, Bataille, Leiris, Einstein. The freedom of his art, resolutely modern, fashioned in the Catalan refuge of Mont-roig and in his Parisian studios, actually places him in a position of radical departure from the avant-gardes of the twentieth century, so much so that it resounds a personal vibration, between the permanent demand for interiority and the desire for universality. With the obstinacy of a strategist, Miró wanted to go "beyond" painting. The challenges he set himself - restoring to art the original power it had lost, the mission of reviving immemorial myths with great archetypal signs - led him to explore all the practices he constantly subverted, with a play of humour and invention that was always on the alert.
