Historical Description

Joan Miró Catalogue Image for the exhibition “Miro el tapis de Tarragona”, 1970 is a wonderful introduction image to Miró’s style. This colorful image effortlessly welcomes any viewer to Miró and his work. Vibrant bursts of red, black, blue and green contrast beautifully to create this visually engaging piece. The primary colors are common in Miró’s body of work. The opaque coloring and the hint of abstraction together conjure a distinct image. The composition combines Miro’s unique concept of lines and form alongside his innate sense of color. The lines add volume and weight to the work while the colors animate the piece. When one attempts to understand the abstract forms, they are no doubt reminded of the rising of the sun. The viewer easily envisions the moment as the red sun rises over the yellow earth, the sky awakens to usher out the blazing red sun. These fascinating visual elements combine to form an unforgettable and distinct visual narrative.
