Historical Description

Joan Miró’s Oiseau migrateur (Migratory Birds), 1970 is a simple yet captivating lithograph that captures Miró’s artistry. This lithograph is one of four plates in Miró’s Migratory Birds series. In the center of the composition, a large red circle filled with sunny yellow peeks through dark black brushstrokes. The brushstrokes move the eye around the composition and create dynamic energy for the viewer to follow. With smaller accents of blue, teal, red and green, Miró crafts a beautifully simple and colorful design. The shape that the inky black brushstrokes create could suggest a bird-like figure against a blank background, like an open sky. The beauty in Miró’s work comes from his brilliant skill in abstracting forms and playing with line, color and shape to create unique and mystifying artworks.
