The Marvels of Miró
The Grand Palais is hosting a major retrospective devoted to the great Catalan artist Joan Miró. Entitled simply Miró, the show brings together nearly 150 works including paintings, drawings, ceramics and sculptures, underscoring the key periods in his career, which spanned close to seven decades. The show covers his Fauvist, Cubist and Detaillist periods followed by his Surrealist period in which he created innovative, poetic works. Exceptional loans from leading museums around the world as well as major private collections emphasise the pivotal periods of Miró who once declared, “People will understand more and more that I opened the doors to another future that runs against all falsehood, all fanaticism.” His worlds are at times fantastical, apparently simple, filled with seemingly impossible juxtapositions that are always enchanting, spectacular, worlds from this artist who once said, “For me a painting should be like sparks. It should dazzle you like the beauty of a woman or a poem.” - P.V.
