Miro - Pillow Case - Head Of A Man III (1931)

- +

Decorative pillow case featuring a Surrealist painting of Joan Miró  representing a man's head
© Successió Miró Tete d'homme III" (1931)

Joan Punyet Miró (Miró "grandson) gave his explanation about this painting in an intimate interview: "It is the head of a man painted in a burlesque and abstract way, providing a more subversive and distant side of reality. There is a «musical expression» in Miró "brush strokes in this creative period: both soft and flat at the same time. We can read in this work a psychological and metaphysical interpretation; going beyond the human scope trespassing the limits of his imagination. It is an invitation into his unconscious."

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.

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.
