At Palazzo Mosca - Civic Museums comes the summer exhibition: "Joan Miró graphic works 1948 -1971" dedicated to one of the greatest masters of the twentieth century.
The exhibition, organized by the Municipality of Pesaro - Department of Beauty and Museum System, in collaboration with The Art Co., opens to the public on Friday 9 July at 8 pm and will be open until 3 October.
An all-round surrealist artist, Joan Miró (Barcelona 1893 - Palma de Mallorca 1983) is a painter and sculptor but finds in graphic techniques the ideal medium to express the most unexpected aspects of his way of understanding art and life; the exhibition documents this by presenting four important series, among the most significant in his vast production: "Parler seul" (1948-50), "Quelques Fleurs pour des Amis" (1964), "Ubu Roi" (1966) and "Le Lézard aux plumes d'or "(1971).
For the Catalan artist, paper is a particularly suitable medium for creating images and compositions with unusual expressive freedom, where signs, colors, surfaces and lights exploit the materials and peculiarities of each engraving technique. Miró also changes the modalities of the relationship between the visual artist, generally called to illustrate a text, and the writer, inaugurating a new way in which the painter participates in the emotions of the poet and interprets them through his own art. Not an illustration, therefore, but an artistic path complementary to poetic thought.
