Almost every detail about Joan Miro is riveting: attracted to the truthfulness he found in austerity, delighted by a certain opulence of beauty, appalled by politics, war, and economy; an introvert, a poet, and a great painter; a Catalan pessimist with a flair for grotesque; a disciplined artist who despised rigidity because it was an art killer (hence his famous ‘I want to assassinate painting’ line). Ever insubordinate to the realities of modernism / modernity, Joan Miro is decidedly one of its best painters and one of its most amiable personalities.
Feel free to print out a couple of his painting you would like to talk about or simply share during our conversation.
Here is a link to an interview with Miro about his working methods and his view on art:
