JOAN MIRO "THE RED SPOT", 1961
Joan Miró is one of the greatest artists of the 20th century; an exceptional painter, sculptor, printmaker, and ceramicist.
Miró’s works, which are often at the intersection of Surrealism and abstraction, began receiving international attention in the 1920’s. Miró had an incredibly prolific career and created artwork in an array of media until the time of his death in 1983.
Miró developed a unique visual language by combining abstract elements, a consistent primary palette, and reoccurring motifs. His best known period of work began in the early 1960’s where he began receiving many public work commissions. His works are noted for their freshness, vitality and his palette.
Set against a background of black and varying shades of grey "The Red Spot" is classic Miró. Splotches of white seem to have hurled themselves against the canvas, losing themselves to smaller splatters, sprays, and splotches. A floating orb (one of Miró's signatures) of vibrant turquoise and a blurred comet-like streak of orange punctuate the greyscale galaxy.
Miró's playful and mysterious abstractions are layered with symbolism and an immediately recognizable visual language.
