© Successió Miró Femme, Oiseau, Etoile - Extrait 1" (1966-73)
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.
The composition focuses on the three essential figures of Miró "symbolism: the woman, which refers to the link of human beings and their roots in the land, together with the bird and the star that symbolise poetic and spiritual attraction, and which are shown on either side of the central figure. Moreover, it is defined by the force of the white background, which is treated with all the richness and complexity that the quality of the material and the skill of its execution permit.
