In 1958, artist Joan Miró and critic Yvon Taillandier sat down for an in-depth discussion on Miró's life and work. Their conversation, one of the most illuminating and insightful looks into Miró's philosophy and creative process, was first published in a limited edition of seventy five copies in 1964. Though long out of print, this bilingual "treasure," in the words of Maria Popova, "remains the most direct and comprehensive record of Miró's ideas on art." This beautiful new edition presents an updated English translation of Miró's invaluable text in an elegant and striking package. In addition to Taillandier's original foreword, a new preface by preeminent Miró scholar Robert Lubar provides wider context and insight. An appendix includes the original French text in its entirety. Joan Miró: I Work Like a Gardener brings to life the words and work of one of the most beloved and influential artists of the twentieth century.

Miró, one of the greatest painters and sculptors of the twentieth century, is probably the artist who has most identified himself with the colours and creativity of the Mediterranean. Now Miró is travelling to Greece from his native Spain. The Exhibition Joan Miró: In the Orbit of the Imaginary, organised in the Goulandris Foundation Museum on the island of Andros in Greece, focuses on particulary on the artist's mature works, from 1957 onwards. It is illustrated by a catalogue that is very different from other publications on Miró, with 100 colour photographs and an exceptionally accurate chronology and bibliography. It is one of the most beautiful books dedicated to the 'Mediterranean' Miró and one of the most beautiful catalogues of an art exhibition.

Joan Miro (1893-1983) was a key figure in twentieth-century art, and one of the most engaging artists of our time. He left behind a remarkable legacy, a body of work that continues to reach an increasingly wide public today. Now, some ten years after his death, and to mark the centenary of his birth, this sumptuously illustrated volume offers new information and insights into Miro's long and extremely productive career. Author Jacques Dupin has considerably revised and enriched his original far-reaching study of Joan Miro, published by Abrams in 1962. He has taken into account not only the painter's output during the last two decades of his life, but also a great number of documents discovered after his death - projects, sketchbooks, texts, poems, correspondence (to which Dupin had privileged access through his relationship with Miro's family) - as well as studies by art historians and curators that have appeared over the last twenty years. Far from limiting his analysis to the artist's painting, Dupin has explored the almost infinite universe of Miro's imagination. Thus he surveys the artist's experiments in such diverse fields as sculpture, lithography, book illustration, ceramics, mural painting, and stage and costume design. A passionate creator in the world of the plastic arts, and an equally passionate lover of words, of the most audacious poetical games, Miro was an artist of the subconscious, constantly in pursuit of the dreams which inspired some of his finest canvases. Nearly 500 illustrations, 200 in full color, reproduce works from every phase of Miro's career. An illustrated chronology, an extensive bibliography, and a list of exhibitions add to the value of this superbvolume, an indispensable addition to the literature on modern art.
