Historical Description

Miró Cover for Exhibition Catalogue at Sala Pelaires, Palma de Majorca, 1970 is one of a few images he created to commemorate his special solo exhibition. This bright and lively work was originally created as the image for the catalogue for the Exhibition ‘Miro’, Sala Pelaires, Palma de Majorca. Bursting with color and animation, this charming print features a curious figure in the center which is surrounded by Miró’s signature bursts of color. Exciting and engaging, this piece instills its surroundings with a sense of fun and whimsy. Immediately, a bright red oval becomes the focal point. Underneath, calligraphic black strokes underline this bright shape. Bursts of color in green, blue and yellow create a dynamic composition. Throughout the image, the star shape repeatedly appears. This shape consistently reappears throughout Miró’s body of work-easily becoming his signature.
