#200

07/06/2011

Today is a special day! We have so far published 200 posts. Every day, except the weekends (because it’s not an obligation, it’s a pleasure) there is a special artwork to be seen here!

Thanks to Fernanda Marth, who every single Friday collaborates with this blog and to Pedro Perurena, who occasionally, but not less important, contributes here too. Thanks to all the subscribers, the artists and galleries that send me by email their news and suggestions, the twitter followers and to you that come here to check out the daily post because you like art as much as me! ;)

So to celebrate the day, I choose Joan Miró’s work. I’ve been at Tate Modern a few weeks ago and I was absolutely amazed by the huge and well -done exhibition. It’s the first major retrospective called The Ladder of Scape at Tate for nearly 50 years. Miró had completely changed his style along the years and you will see here a chronological order of some of his important paintings and the ones that I like most.  Enjoy ;D Luana

“I understand the artist to be someone who, amidst the silence of others, use his voice to say something, and who has the obligation that this thing not be useless but something that offers a service to man. For the fact of  being able to say something, when the majority of people do not have the option of expressing themselves, obliges this voice in some way to be prophetic. To be, in a certain sense, the voice of its community…For when an artist speaks in an environment in which freedom is difficult, he must turn each of his works into a negation of the negations, in an untying of all oppressions, all prejudices, and all the false established values.” Joan Miró, 1979
