Product Description

Joan Miró: Painting and Anti-Painting, 1927-1937 (HC)

Edited by Anne Umland. With essays by Jim Coddington, Robert S. Lubar, Jordana Mendelson, Adele Nelson, and Anne Umland

This richly illustrated volume is the first to focus on Miró the “anti-painter,” identifying the various tactics of aggression—including acidic color, grotesque disfigurement, stylistic heterogeneity, and the use of resistant, ready-made materials—that Miró pursued during a crucial decade in his long career. Twelve distinct series of works are presented, beginning with a remarkable group of paintings on unprimed canvas and concluding with Miró’s return to working from life in 1937 with Still Life with Old Shoe. Through an interrelated series of paintings, collages, objects, and drawings, this book integrates close scrutiny of Miró’s materials and processes with historical and iconographic analysis, leading to an expanded understanding of the underappreciated aggressiveness of an artist long regarded as Surrealism’s most lyrical painter-poet. Includes 200 illustrations.
