Artist: Miro, Joan

A Master Painter of Twentieth Century Modern Art, Joan Miró was at the same time  distinctly modern and a lover of history. Created with exclusive access to the Miró Museum in Barcelona, Spain, this DVD is a rich tapestry of art, history and personality, interweaving state-of-the-art High Definition Filming, Historic Newsreel Footage, a tour of his legendary studio and performance by La Claca Theater Group in costumes designed by Miró himself.

 

In this film, we journey through the dazzling achievements of a master Modern Art painters and printmaker. This DVD covers the painter’s invention of the Grattage style and his adventures into Surrealism, Abstract and Modernist painting and Collages, reflecting the influence of different trends, like the pure and brilliant colors used in Fauvism, shapes taken from Cubism, influences from folkloric Catalan art, and Roman frescos from the churches. We take an in depth look at works of fine art such as Naked Flame On Naked Woman, Man and Woman In Front of a Pile of Excrement, Constellation: Morning Star, and Woman and Bird in the Night. In his later years he concentrated more on monumental and public works.

 

With Primal Force and infinite delicacy, Joan Miró (1983-1983) created a visual world that fused passion, sexuality, philosophy and flights of fancy into an ecstatic carnival of symbols: Stars, Eyes, Women, Birds, and objects from the Catalonian landscape and folklore of his native country, Spain. In 1976 the Joan Miró Foundation Centre of Contemporary Art Study was officially opened in the city of Barcelona.
