MIRÓ’S POLITICAL PERSPECTIVE

October 24, 2011

Direct from the London Tate Modern and before going on to the National Gallery of Art inWashington, the exhibition “Joan Miró: The Ladder of Escape ” highlights the artist’s lifelong political commitment.

Miró’s sense of Catalan identity is unquestionable, as were the links he maintained with his native land. All this is shown in the works that are now on display in this exhibition, which range from Montroig landscapes like La masia (1921-1922) which was owned by Ernest Hemingway, a friend of Miró´s, the masterly sequence Cap de pagès català (1924-1925) to the series of Ses Majestats sculptures (1974) made from rural tools.
