Book Description

This latest volume of Harper Design's ongoing Duets series focuses on a special creative relationship indeed -- that between architect Josep Lluís Sert (1902-1983) and artist Joan Miró (1893-1983).Both Barcelona natives, the lifelong friends remained influential to one another as their individual careers evolved. Even when Sert emigrated to the United States (eventually becoming Professor and Dean at Harvard University), the two remained close: Sert designed Miró's Mallorca studio; Miró paid him with a painting.

Both men's styles reflect their Mediterranean roots. Joan Miró's paintings evolved from the rich, poetic realism of his early works to later symbolic, abstract, organic forms, yet all retained the bold, decorative colors of the Catalan landscape. Josep Lluís Sert's growing...

Book Description
Joan Miró (1893-1983) is one of the most significant Spanish painters of the 20th century. Influenced by fauvism and cubism, he went on to create his own style of figurative, symbolic art that was as playful as it was provocative - all of it sampled in this richly illustrated Spanish-language entry in the Basic Art series celebrating major artists.

Joan Miro, 1916-1934: I'm Going to Smash Their Guitar
Joan Miro

Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. The popular image of Miró may portray him as a childlike creator of whimsical doodles, but this hulking slab of a coffee table book, published in conjunction with an exhibit at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, brilliantly restores Miró’s violence and thorny intellectualism. Covering the 17-year period during which, as Bruno Racine writes, "the artist’s visual language had time enough to develop but not to become formulaic," the book takes its title from a comment the artist made about Cubism. The guitar in question stood for all that had become stereotypical about that style. But Miró’s iconoclasm, the book makes clear, extended even to his own ambitions, and to art itself. As he once remarked, his goal was to "murder painting." In the most interesting of the...

Dada and Surrealism: A Very Short Introduction
David Hopkins

October 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The avant-garde movements of Dada and Surrealism continue to have a huge influence on cultural practice, especially in contemporary art, with its obsession with sexuality, fetishism, and shock tactics. In this new treatment of the subject, Hopkins focuses on the many debates surrounding these
movements: the Marquis de Sade's Surrealist deification, issues of quality (How good is Dali?), the idea of the 'readymade', attitudes towards the city, the impact of Freud, attitudes to women, fetishism, and primitivism. The international nature of these movements is examined, covering the cities
of Zurich, New York, Berlin, Cologne, Barcelona, Paris, London, and recenlty discovered examples in Eastern Europe.
Hopkins explores the huge range of media employed by both Dada and Surrealism (collage, painting, found...
