The bright colors and graphic strength of Joan Miró's paintings have made him immensely popular, but the artist would have been disappointed to see his work treated as little more than interior décor. This accessible survey of the artist's life and career explores the complex roots and darker shades that lie behind the evolution of Miró's work, from the culture of his Catalan homeland to his exposure to the Parisian avant-garde, and the rise of fascism in Spain. Alongside Miró's paintings, the author studies his sculpture, prints, and murals, quoting from the artist's own revealing statements. For anyone wanting to explore the visual legacy of the artist who declared that he wanted to "assassinate painting," this vividly illustrated book is the perfect guide. --- Book Description
