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.

    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.
