Miró. Catalogue Raisonné, Céramics 1941-1981
Alongside Picasso and Warhol, Joan Miró (1893-1983) is one of the twentieth century’s most influential artists. Miró created a pictorial world of intense imaginative power, in which visionary and cosmic elements are inextricably intertwined with the earthly and mundane. The research for this catalogue raisonné of Miró’s work was begun in 1957. The artist himself and later the Miró Estate were largely involved in its preparation–Jacques Dupin, Ariane Lelong-Mainaud and Joan Punyet Miró. This volume catalogues the entirety of the artist’s well-known output in ceramics. Each work is accompanied by its title, date, technique and dimensions, with indication of signature and inscriptions on the back, as well as its collection, provenance, important exhibitions and major publications in which it is reproduced.
