Joan Miro, 1982
Joan Miro’s cast bronze Oiseau is a “bird” of a monumental and highly unorthodox order. Its bulbous volumes and spiky projections lend it a whimsical character, thoroughly in keeping with the great Spanish surrealist’s sense of humor.
As one of the 20th century’s most well-known and appreciated artists, Miro is renowned for such fanciful abstractions as Oiseau, blending invention with the spirit of nature. The works of Miro have been exhibited in major galleries throughout the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
