Lot 9015 Details

Description
This lot consists of an oil on canvas painting, attributed to modern abstract artist Joan Miro (Spanish, 1893-1983). Hand inscription at bottom reads, "Miro". This abstract image suggests a playful and avant garde sensibility. Heavy black and red forms seem to float through space. Softened and dreamy background with neatly defined organic forms and
biomorphic shapes. A dynamic and lively addition to any collection. Painting is executed in the abstract curvilinear design for which Miro is so beloved. Painting is done over a previously painted canvas. Overall unframed stretched canvas measures approximately 21.25" x 25.75".

Several paper labels en verso which read in part "Fundacio Joan Miro" and "James Bourlet & Sons Ltd." Several other gallery stamps and address adorn the back of the canvas.

Joan Miro was born in Barcelona, Spain on April 20, 1893, the son of a watchmaker. From 1912 he studied at the Barcelona Ecole des Beaux-Arts and the Academie Gali. In the first quarter of the 20th century, Barcelona was a cosmopolitan, intellectual city with a craving for the new in art, music and literature. But it was not the place where great art was being made. That place was Paris and Miro established himself there at the age of twenty-six. He made friends with Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Ernest Hemingway, Max Ernst and Paul Klee and was accepted as a Surrealist, looking stronger as the years went by. He lived alone in Paris in total poverty, but everytime he went out he wore a monocle and white spats. He kept his brushes clean, waxed and polished the floor of his studio and arranged his canvases in neat order.
