For nearly seven decades the ebullient art of Joan Miró (1893-1983), Spanish painter, sculptor, ceramist and mythmaker, has intrigued and enchanted art lovers worldwide. This collection of his writings presents a portrait of the artist in his own words. Miro's notebooks, letters, and interviews reveal the work and life of a brilliant artist revered for his uncanny expression of the subconscious. Essentially autobiography, these texts vividly depict the artist's struggle to transform his private realities and personal contradictions into compelling and universal images. Little-known facets of Miró's personality emerge from these pages: his extreme poetic sensibility, intense spiritual life, and highly disciplined approach to the conception and execution of new ideas. "Joan Miró" centres on Paris during the vibrant era between the wars, when Miró became the intimate of almost everyone in that scene - boxing with young Hemingway, working with Max Ernst on the Ballets Russes, drinking, painting and arguing with Picasso, Braque, Dubuffet, Matisse, Breton and many others. Miró engagingly recounts all of this, as well as stories of his exile during Second World War. Miró's virtuosity encompassed drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, poetry, stage sets, costumes, murals and tapestries; he vividly describes the creation of these artworks in these pages. Interweaving Miró's life and art, authoritatively annotated, supplemented with a scholarly chronology, and illustrated with 24 pages of photographs, "Joan Miró" offers rare access into the mind of one of the giants of twentieth-century art.
