Joan Miró. Gaudí Series

 
 

24.5.2002 - 1.9.2002
Fundació Joan Miró

Joan Miró’s admiration for Gaudí’s work took the form, in 1979, of a series of twenty-one etchings, stamped on paper, dedicated by the painter to the great architect. In them, homage is paid to Gaudí’s unlimited imagination, his overwhelming enthusiasm, and the ability of Gaudí’s works to break established molds and take risks without fear of excesses.
The present exhibit brings together this singular group in which Miró’s colors and graphism, alternating with newspaper collages, remind one of the ceramic mosaics of Palau Güell. A strong creative impulse challenges the laws of balance and gravity; fragmented areas of color, like scales, are combined with circles of color diffused in space, creating dynamic movements.
