JOAN MIRO "COLPIR SENSE NAFRAR III" LITHO, 1981
Joan Miró is one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. He is renowned internationally as a painter, sculptor, printmaker, and ceramicist.
Miró’s works, which are often at the intersection of Surrealism and abstraction, began receiving international attention in the 1920s. Miró had an incredibly prolific career and created artwork in an array of media until the time of his death in 1983.
A museum dedicated to his work, the Joan Miró Foundation, was established in his native city of Barcelona in 1975, and another, the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró Foundation, was established in his adoptive city of Palma de Mallorca in 1981.
Miró developed a unique visual language by combining abstract elements, bold primary colors, and reoccurring motifs. His best-known period of work began in the early 1960s when he began receiving many public work commissions.
"Colpir Sense Nafrar III" features Miró’s signature palette of canary yellow, primary red, blue, emerald green, and ink black. Bold stripes, triangles and arcs of joyful color populate the work, creating a composition that is both expressive and calculated...and perhaps figurative. The lower half of the composition recalls the curled shoes of an elf or gnome. In Miro's world, this type of magic, whimsy and mystery is always present. Whether intentional or not, creatures emerge in many of Miró’s compositions creating his signature cosmic symbolism.
