The Albertina dedicates a solo exhibition to the Catalonian artist with around 100 paintings, drawings and objects highlighting the poetic quality of his oeuvre. Miró’s works are characterized by a sense of lightness and spontaneity, and are yet meticulously planned. Miró shows a carefree, almost childish fascination for all things. His distinct pictorial language is as magical as it is universal. Moons, stars and comets, eyes and insects, birds and women populate his paintings and are among the most recognizable motifs in his art. The works of Joan Miró shed light on his poetic vision and sense of the primordial, the true essence of objects and the universe.
