Miró Lune et Vent (Moon and Wind), 1963 is a wonderful color aquatint which unveils the artist’s understanding of color and form. In the center of the paper is a lush orange line which is gently brushed across the page. Above and below the line are curved forms in yellow and green. Spontaneous black splatters decorate the page alongside the image. Above the scene, a luminous red circle directs the viewer’s gaze. In many ways, this work exemplifies Miró’s usage of the subconscious as part of the creative process. The title clues viewers in on the possible image before them. The red circle to the upper right may be the moon, the loose, colorful strokes below mirror the impression of a windy night. Through the 1920s, Miro developed his own pictorial sign language which was included all works thereafter. This experimental style definite comes through in Lune et Vent (Moon and Wind), 1963. He allows for a certain narrative to form yet ensures that the viewer can also let their own subconscious create the significance. This wonderful work delights both the mind and the eye.
