Miró multiplies

  1. Plenty of reds and circles bring this all together. The layout of the parts at a high level are very geometric. When you get further in it breaks down quite pleasingly.

  2. The three roundels compliment one another well and I like the ‘Mondrian’ framing. I looked up the exhibition and watched the Giacometti video, I’d never heard of him but the glimpses of his work were interesting.

  3. Rex: Giacometti is well worth the effort to investigate further. In some of the more out-of-town Japan art museums you come across his sculptures quite regularly. Not sure what that means but through seeing these it has made my understanding of that art a little stronger. Also his portraits by some of the leading French photographers of his time indicate to me that he was as comfortable being art as well as making it.

  4. I enjoyed watching the way he painted using the black lines and a single brush. I assume that was a study for a maquette which then lead to a bronze sculpture. I need to find out a bit more.

    In my drawing and painting days I did some life sketching where I forced myself to just use straight lines. It was interesting how it affected the way I looked at the subject.

  5. Oh, this is marvellous. Laughing so much, I can’t think of anything to say. No smoking indeed!

  6. The 3 circles are a good find, I keep on seeing a smily faca across teh bottom of the picture.

  7. Very enjoyable — with your signature red. A wonderful “find”.

  8. Robert – I see it as a devil’s tail! But there is a face looking a bit like Dali there too.

    Thanks for comments and I’m glad that it proved enjoyable and a little bit educational!

  9. This one set me off looking for, and delighting in, numerous circles. Thanks partly to the addition of the repetition of red and the balance of the other colors, it was quite an entertaining journey.
