Fellow painter Erben spent countless hours conversing with his colleague, Joan Miro (1893-1983), at his house in Mallorca for this book--a retrospective which explores through texts and images the work of one of the 20th century's most influential painters.

Walter Erben (1908-1981) studied German at Berlin University as well as painting at the Academy of Art in Dusseldorf, where he studied under Oskar Moll and Paul Klee. Erben taught fine art in Rome and Hagen, authored many successful books on the subject, and lectured extensively during his lifetime. Hajo Duchting, a painter, writer, editor, and art historian, holds professorships in the history of modern art at the Universities of Leipzig and Munich. He has supplemented Erben's text with a chapter on Miro's later life as well as numerous interpretations of a selected number of works.

With a career spanning seven decades, Catalan-born Joan Miro (1893--1983) was a polymath giant of modern art, producing masterworks across painting, sculpture, art books, tapestry, and ceramics, and embracing ideologies as varied as Fauvism, Surrealism, Dada, Magic Realism, Cubism, and abstraction.

Over the course of his prodigious output, Miro evolved constantly, seeking to eschew categorization and the approval of 'bourgeois' art critics as much as he pursued his own dreamlike worlds. Emerging into the public spotlight in the early 1920s, he first experimented with Fauvism and Cubism before developing a distinctive style of symbols and pictograms, arranged in elusive visual narratives, with frequent reference to Catalan life. As his career progressed, Miro moved towards Surrealism, and, despite never fully identifying with the movement, emerged as one of its most celebrated practitioners with techniques including automated drawing, Lyrical Abstraction, and Color Field painting. In later years, he diversified his media further, working with ceramics, textiles, and even proposing sculptures made of gas.
