Miro - Pillow Case - Peinture (1931)

Decorative pillow case featuring a surrealist painting of Joan Miró© Successió Miró Peinture" (1931)

In an intimate interview, Joan Punyet Miró (Miró's grandson) explained that this picture was painted when his mother was only one year old. At that time, Miró had just finished creating the sets and costumes for the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo "Jeux d'enfants by Georges Bizet. This painting is like a piano score. It reveals dramatic, but very colorful scenes with an intensity specific to Miró "paintings. We can perceive the presence of a man and a woman dancing in the form of horizontal and vertical abstract lines: an expression of the artist "imagination. The touch of the paintbrush is black and round but flattened, creating a geometric vocabulary very similar to Mondrian. We are close to the freedom of the Surrealists.

Miró was a Catalan artist from Spain that combined abstract art with Surrealist fantasy to create his lithographs, murals, tapestries, and sculptures. His mature approach 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.
