"From his childhood on, Mallorca was to be a second home for Joan Miro. His mother hailed from the island, as did his wife Pilar Juncosa. A refuge for many Republicans, Mallorca became Miro's permanent place of abode from the mid-1950s onward. He acquired a plot of land overlooking the Bahia de Palma, upon which he commissioned his friend Josep Lluis Sert to build a spacious studio. He died there in 1983 at the age of ninety." "Miro on Mallorca concerns itself primarily with the varied themes and techniques of the artist's later works - painting, sculpture, prints, and ceramics - which, with the exception of the latter, were all created in his studios on the island. It was the clear light of Mallorca that especially fascinated Miro - the poetic blues of the sky and the sea. In his sculpture, he was especially inspired by the artistic creativity of the island inhabitants, not to mention the agriculture and the precipitous cliffs which give the landscape of Mallorca its unique quality."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
