Miro at the Tate Modern

Joan Miro was one of the most astonishing 20th century artists – and this show is a great way to see and learn about this genius of the surrealist movement.  The

show is entitled Joan Miro: The Ladder of Escape – it examines periods across his career that reveal the person behind the voice.

The show is divided into 13 rooms.

Room one shows his beginning – born in 1893 in Barcelona where there was an exciting atmosphere of modernism and modernisation going hand in hand with the internationalism and strengthened Catalan identity.  The paintings in this room were geometrical and show the origin of his sense of style and balance.  His parents moved to the country and he lived on a farm starting in 1911.  The Farm, painted in 1921 is phenomenal in its colour and balance.

Each and every room is a pleasure. To see the differences, the balance, and the transformation of the artist throughout the 20th century.
