About Miro Pillow Case

In an intimate interview, Joan Punyet Miró (Miró "grandson) explained that this painting expressed great strength, and is his favorite. It was painted four years after the triptych of the large Blue canvasses exhibited at the Pompidou Center. It is unique by its total detachment of the form. It is the return of dreamlike paintings, a freedom similar to the one we find in the American Abstract Expressionism of the 50´s.

Miró was a Spanish painter that combined abstract art with Surrealist fantasy to create his lithographs, murals, tapestries, and sculptures. His mature style evolved from the tension between his fanciful, poetic impulse and his vision of the harshness of modern life.
In spite of his fame, Miró, an introvert, continued to devote himself exclusively to looking and creating.

During the final years of his career, much of the work which Joan Miró created, took more of an interest on symbolism, and the message that was being portrayed, as opposed to the actual image, and the exact features which were created in these works. The eccentric style in which Joan created, is an embodiment of the unique approach he took not only to the work he created, but to the art world in general, and the many unique forms of art which he created during the course of his illustrious career. In these works, of which some very important examples are on show, the author reaches the absolute limits of the purification of painting, organizing poetic spaces where vibration, rhythm and emotion are key.

    Joan Miró is one of the greatest surrealist artists of the 20th-century. Hailing from Barcelona, Spain, Miró originally went to business school. He soon completely abandoned the practice for art after suffering a nervous breakdown. His early work had various inspirations, including Paul Cezanne and Vincent Van Gogh. Through these greats, he channeled a poetic vision of his work, which allowed a natural transition into the Surrealism. He eventually quickly became one of the most important representatives of the group. Miró remained interested in the possibility of creating new forms of visual messages that could exist outside the substantive world. The focus on the abstract in his art led to breathtaking surrealist imagery that subsequently lodges itself in our minds. His successes earned him the Guggenheim International Award in 1958. In 1974, He produced a tapestry for the World Trade Center which was displayed for many years at the building, but, unfortunately, was one of the most expensive works of art lost during the September 11 attacks.
