PARIS. “MIRÓ” 3 octobre 2018 – 4 february 2019. Grand Palais, Galeries Nationales.

Bringing together nearly 150 works, this retrospective traces the technical and stylistic evolution of the artist. Miró creates from his dreams and opens the door to his poetic universe.

Miró transformed the world around him with an apparent simplicity of means, whether a symbol, the tracing of a finger or water on paper, a seemingly fragile line on the canvas, a line in the ground fused with fire, or an insignificant object paired with another. He conjured a world full of poetic transformations from these surprising juxtapositions and unusual marriages, restoring enchantment to the world.

“For me, a painting should be like sparks. It should dazzle you like the beauty of a woman or a poem.”Joan Miró
