JOAN MIRO, 1893-1993. Fundacio Joan Miro, Barcelona, 1993. Organized in association with Stichting Cadre, Amsterdam et al. Published in association with Leonardo Arte s.r.l., Milan. English edition published by Bulfinch Press, Little, Brown and Company, Boston. 534 pp. with 475 ills. (431 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 93-71688 ISBN 0821220241 In English.
Documenting one of the principal exhibitions organized to mark the centenary of Miro's birth, this massive catalogue features fine color reproductions of some 150 paintings and more than 275 preliminary sketches, collages and other works spanning the career of the celebrated Spanish artist (1893-1983), showcasing many of his important Cubist and Surrealist compositions from the 1910s through the early 1940s while also including examples of his early landscapes and late abstractions. Three substantial essays discuss the influence of Miro's Catalan heritage on his artistic development, reassess the origins and significance of the experimental "anti-paintings" he produced following his embrace of Surrealism in the mid-1920s, and explore the relevance of the artist's oeuvre to an appreciation of the work of such divergent contemporary figures as A.R. Penck and Donald Judd.
