Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 – Palma, 1983) Charivari, 1976 is a complicated yet delicate work; its design is straightforward and minimalistic , though it is made with a maturity that only an artist as well seasoned as Miro could fabricate. It is composed of overlapping abstracted forms in black, green, yellow and red on toned paper. The work’s title Charivari is French in origin and is defined as a series of discordant noises. The rhythmic forms in this piece perform as such noises and cavort in in a beautiful dance across the page. The forms are clamorous in nature, but they also possess an aura of grace and sophistication. The scene which Miro creates in this work is simultaneously chaotic and peaceful. The mark of the artist contains a sense of urgency that translates into the entire work, and the forms create rhythm and movement that is pleasing to the eye.
Created in 1976, this color aquatint is hand-signed by Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 – Palma, 1983) in white pencil the lower right image and numbered from the edition of 50 in white pencil in the lower left image.
