New views of Joan Miró
Joan Miró ranks alongside Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí as one of the most influential Spanish artists of classical modernism. Using a formal vocabulary entirely his own, he created a wide-ranging oeuvre that is deeply infused with poetry. The Fondation Beyeler owns six paintings and one sculpture from different phases of Miró’s career. These works allow us to trace the evolution of Miró’s art, its breaks with the past and its new departures, and identify themes that occupied the artist throughout his life. The discussion centers in particular upon the paintings Landscape (Landscape with Rooster), Painting (The Fratellini Brothers) (both 1927) and Painting (1930), and the bronze sculpture Moon Bird (1966).
ANSICHTEN no. 13 takes an in-depth look at the work of Joan Miró. Detailed descriptions, technical data, special features, background information, and questions of interpretation all fall within the scope of this booklet.
The ANSICHTEN (‘VIEWS’) series has been created for art lovers and teachers. Packed with insights, the series allows you to explore the works in the Fondation Beyeler in greater depth.
Each ANSICHTEN volume also contains a section specifically designed for art educators. This part of the book suggests ideas for practical exercises and experiments that can be performed in the museum, in the classroom or at home.
The ANSICHTEN series published by the Fondation Beyeler is an enjoyable and entertaining way of deepening your knowledge of a work of art.
