JOAN MIRO

20th Century Artists
Bath

In the album ‘Le Lézard aux plumes d’or’ Miro combines the images
with a ‘free form poem’. Taking his inspiration from Mallarmé and
Apollinaire, Miró abolishes the distinction between calligraphy and
spontaneity. The title ‘Le Lézard aux plumes d’or’ evokes the ‘pompous
mythological metamorphosis’ of reptiles. Miro’s lizard lives surreal
adventures bringing the sun back into the sky whilst avoiding the
crescent moon contained within kabbalistic symbols.
