Joan Miró, ‘Mondana alla finestra’, 1975, Deodato Arte

Light and subtle lines, strong and decisive colors allow the observer to dive into this space with a fantastic appearance, but to a deeper look becomes realistic and you can see a woman facing the window, as the title of the work tells us.
Miró uses such fine and refined forms that do not allow for an objective view of the subjects he presents in his works. But this is one of the features of his art: assassinate modern painting to immerse him in a surrealist environment.

About Joan Miró

Joan Miró rejected the constraints of traditional painting, creating works “conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness,” as he once said. Widely considered one of the leading Surrealists, though never officially part of the group, Miró pioneered a wandering linear style of Automatism—a method of “random” drawing that attempted to express the inner workings of the human psyche. Miró used color and form in a symbolic rather than literal manner, his intricate compositions combining abstract elements with recurring motifs like birds, eyes, and the moon. “I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music,” he said. While he prized artistic freedom, Miró revered art history, basing a series of works on the Dutch Baroque interiors of Hendrick Sorgh and Jan Steen. In turn, Miró has inspired many artists—significantly Arshile Gorky, whose bold linear abstractions proved a foundational influence on Abstract Expressionism.
