The roots of Miró by Pere Gimferrer( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and German and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By comparing Spanish artist Joan Miro's finished paintings and sculptures with more than 1200 of his sketches and preparatory studies, Gimferrer places Miro's art in a surprising new perspective. Marvelously illustrated with 285 radiant color plates and 1276 in black-and-white, this intensive analysis of Miro's creative process explains how he would first isolate some element from the teeming outside world, then incorporate a graphic sign into it, thus setting in motion a transfigurative process in which objects, signs and symbols underwent a constant metamorphosis. In placing Miro's preliminary drawings alongside the pictures to which they gave rise, Spanish poet and art critic Gimferrer illuminates the inner alchemy by which Miro discovered his major motifs and set them loose in a free-floating pictorial universe

Fortuny : novela by Pere Gimferrer( Book )

50 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scion of an artistic dynasty, inventor, photographer, and costumier of genius, Mariano Fortuny was a touchstone of the Belle Époque: he built stages for Wagner, designed dresses for Sarah Bernhardt, and was a crucial inspiration for Proust's philosophy of memory. The list of his illustrious acquaintances ranges from D'Annunzio to Chaplin, from Caruso to Isadora Duncan, and in this, the first novel by Spain's Pere Gimferrer to be translated into English, they gather like actors on a stage, in Venetian palaces, in Parisian apartments, and in the village squares of the small towns of Catalonia, forming an historical tableau of the vigor and dissipation of Europe's artistic demimonde from the end of the Third Republic to the outbreak of the second World War. Employing the unmatched lyrical inventiveness and range that have made him recognized as Spain's most distinguished poet, Gimferrer has composed a paean to vanished artistic grandeur, suggesting the fragility of the line dividing the real from the imagined: Whatever the eye can see dissolves into a tapestry of prose woven of light and shadow. Proust's description of Fortuny's fabrics applies equally to Gimferrer's words: 'faithfully antique but markedly original, [they] brought before the eye like a stage décor, and with an even greater evocative power since the décor was left to the imagination, a Venice saturated with oriental splendor."--Cover

Alma Venus es un extenso poema unitario que suponetodo un acontecimiento en la obra de Pere Gimferrer: junto a las referencias al cine, la literatura o la pintura habituales en el poeta, estos versos aluden a las circunstancias sociales y políticas actuales. A través del entrelazamiento de lo individual con lo colectivo, del pasado con el presente y del arte con la vida cotidiana, Gimferrer invoca la poesía clásica latina, el legado surrealista y los críticos del mundo actual, Antonio Negri o Noam Chomsky, para reivindicarel poder subversivo del amor en la sociedad capitalista
