Joan Miró Une Femme (A Woman), 1958 studies the shape of a woman’s body through dream-like representation of fantastically strange anatomical parts. Unconcerned with symmetry, the body dominates the rectangular pictorial space, showing off all angles of its fascinating proportions. The beautiful arabesque lines lead the viewer’s eye around the woman’s small curved face and flowing hair, to her waving arms, to her monumental legs. The rich earthy color of her body glows against the cool green background. The window above her echoes the parallel lines of the floor at her feet, and the vivid blue sliver in the window repeats in the diagonal blue forms dissecting the woman’s body. The abstract shapes and lines of the woman and the space around her come together beautifully to create Miró’s surreal realm.
Created in 1958, this color lithograph is hand-signed by Joan Miro (Barcelona, 1893 - Palma, 1983) in the lower right and numbered from an edition of 300 in the lower left. This color lithograph was created after the original oil on wood of the same title from 1932.
