Miro

Until 11 January 2014

With his imaginative pictorial motifs, Joan Miró is one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. The ALBERTINA Museum is dedicating a solo exhibition to the Catalonian artist containing around 100 paintings, drawings and objects, which strives to emphasize the poetic quality of the famous Surrealist.  Miró's painting is characterized by a sense of lightness and spontaneity. He looks upon the world with a carefree, almost childish fascination for all things. His unmistakable pictorial language is as magical as it is universal. Moons, stars and comets, eyes and insects, birds and women populate his paintings and are among the most recognizable elements of his art. Miró's works provide insight into his poetic perception and interpretation of the original, of that which is actually essential in things, the world and the universe.
