Considered one of the great artists of the 20th century, Miro has bequeathed us a definitive body of work whose influence has continued to grow over the years. Joan Miro did not paint dreams, but instead, through his works, provided the spectator with certain elements so that he would be the one that dreamed. Miro never worked under the influence of hypnosis drugs or alcohol. His life, like his painting was always methodical and ordered. Nevertheless, his artistic personality and the way he represented on canvas what inspiration dictated to him led Andre Breton to exclaim, "Miro is the most surrealist of us all!" This book not only details his pictorial output but also looks at the artist's incursions into areas as diverse as graphic work, ceramics, sculpture, tapestry and theatre. A creative force in the plastic field who felt an equal passion for the world, for the most daring poetic playus, a lover of objects and the barre truth of materials, Miro always revealed himself as an oneiric artist, a seeker after the constellations that inspired some of this finest works. AUTHOR Rosa Maria Malet, Director of the Fundacio Joan Miro since 1980, graduated in Philosophy and Letters from the Central University of Barcelona. Her special subject was History of Art. She has mounted numerous themed exhibitions and has produced many publications and catalogues on Joan Miro. She is a member of the leading Spanish and international art associations.
