Joan Miró 1893-1983

The movie for this Monday is about Joan Miró. This movie was made and narrated by a painter named Eva Bosch. Bosch presents the life and work of Miró very well. She goes into the history which seemed to greatly influence Miró's work. Not a huge fan of his work but after watching this I gained an appreciation for it. At the end she describes him as the best painter of poetry, which is probably the best description of his work I've ever heard.

  1. Yeah, I also appreciate him a bit more now. The drawings seemed the most accessible and the assemblages too. Always wonder just how much the times and places influence an artist and she seemed quite sensitive to that. Now I want to see Spain all the more badly.
