Miró: From Earth to Sky - The Albertina

Known for his spontaneous and imaginative interpretation of the world around him, Joan Miró is one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. This beautiful collection of works - the companion book to an exhibition at the Albertina in Vienna, is arranged chronologically, allowing readers to appreciate the evolution of Miró's themes based on his observation of nature and its transformation in his symbolic language.

Each chapter opens with an introductory text and features full-colour illustrations. From his earliest, more figurative works such as Vegetable Garden with Donkey and The Church and Village at Mont-Roig, to more abstract works such as Catalan Peasant with a Guitar and Woman, Bird, Stars, the full range of Miro's oeuvre is on display. Readers will understand how Miró incorporated images of moons, stars, comets, birds, and women into his art, while appreciating his poetic interpretation of these familiar objects.

Essays by Miró scholars as well as a text by the artist himself complete this celebration of a painter, sculptor, and draughtsman whose unwavering delight in ordinary objects is both infectious and inspiring.
