Joan Miró La Ruisselante Solaire (The Solar Dripping) 1976 is an arresting composition of glowing red and splattered black. The upper right is ruled by a red sphere, evocative of a Japanese scroll painting. The center is dominated by a black shape exploding chaotically and dripping down, with a piercing, black-rimmed yellow eye, staring silently at the viewer. The red iris is echoed through the glowing sun. Below the eye is a pale blue face with nostril-like marks, at once recognizable and strange. Flanking it are two mysterious shapes, growing out of the bottom and right edges. The bold blue-and-red horizontal stripes echo the red sphere and the haunting blue pupil-less eye of the exploding black figure. The composition moves in a strong diagonal line from the upper right to the lower left, taking the viewer on a dynamic journey through Joan Miró’s transcendental world.
