Miro - Tray - Landscape (1924)

- +
Decorative tray featuring a Surrealist painting of Joan Miró representing a landscape. © Successió Miró Landscape” (1925)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.This painting belongs to a group of five pieces Miró made in 1924-1925, focused on the Catalan peasant and the region which he was originally from. The painter filled his canvas with colors, reminiscent of the Catalan landscapes. Displayed as an icon, lies the traditional figure of the peasant, wearing his beret and a wispy beard. This painting reflects not only the liberating influences of Surrealism but also Miró “own maturity. To go further, this piece of art may also be an indirect political statement to criticize the end of the Catalan autonomy. With a four-generation legacy of designing and manufacturing tapestries in the fine French tradition, the Jules Pansu company joins forces with the Successio Miró and designs a cheerful collection, where each painting has been selected for the joy of life that it expresses, with its spectacular color range. Only works of art that can be perfectly woven and reproduced without distorting neither the force of colors nor the purity of lines were selected.” explains Joan Punyet Miró, the painter “grandson.The manufacturer is an established weaving house since 1878 in France, renowned for jacquard-woven tapestries and fabrics in both traditional French and contemporary, innovative designs. Woven and preassembled in France by two awarded best craftman of France”.

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.
