About Miro Pillow Case - Jules Pansu - L'étoile Du Matin (1940)
This Miro Pillow Case is part of Jules Pansu's collection called: ' L'étoile Du Matin'.
In August 1939, a month before the start of the Second World War, Miró left Paris and settled in Varengeville-sur-Mer, in Normandy. He begins the series of “Constellations”, which he will continue in Palma and Mont-roig. “I felt a deep desire to flee. I have deliberately closed in on myself. At night, music and the stars began to have a decisive role in my painting ”. The Morning Star is part of this series. Technically, Miró begins by preparing the background, on which he improvises a character that determines the placement of additional characters, until filling the surface forming a world of individuals in communion with the sky. The characters are transparent. There is no modeling, no chiaroscuro, only lines and color planes in a defined space. The “Constellations” contain the essential lexicon of sign language which will occupy the center of Miró's creation in the following years.
