"The Smile of the Flamboyant Wings" by Joan Miró
Created in the post-World War II era, a time when Miró had achieved significant recognition and had further developed his style, this painting, like much of his work, reflects his interest in the subconscious, the childlike, and the relationship between earthly and celestial elements.
About The Artwork
Miró's work often features motifs such as birds, stars, and the moon, which can be seen as part of his personal iconography, imbued with poetic and dream-like symbolism. "The Smile of the Flamboyant Wings" likely incorporates these elements, with its title suggesting a sense of joy and liberation that could be symbolized by the image of wings—a frequent symbol of freedom and transcendence.
About the Artist
Joan Miró (1893 – 1983) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramicist born in Barcelona. Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride. In numerous interviews dating from the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and famously declared an "assassination of painting" in favour of upsetting the visual elements of established painting
A museum dedicated to his work, the Fundació Joan Miró, was established in his native city of Barcelona in 1975, and another, the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró, was established in his adoptive city of Palma de Mallorca in 1981.
