Dancer, I – Jean Miro


(Jean Miro, Dancer, 1925. Oil on canvas. 115.5cm x 88.5cm)

So what do you think of that, then?

It's got an unusual balance that appeals to me, and I like the blue - it achieves the desired contrast between the background and the heart without being to dark and gloomy.

Would have preferred the dancer to be nude though.

Not sure if the artist intended to have this effect, but it made me laugh out loud.

I am a huge Miró fan - have had the lucky privilege of seeing two exhibitions of his work, I can honestly say that few painters have impacted me to the extent that Miró has. There is something quite powerful in his painting - giant, dark, shimmering fields of colour, populated with esoteric characters. More than many other painters, Miró's work hints at untold stories, and a whole deal of the pleasure of his work is in this implied narrative.

Two thumbs up.

Its rubbish. Wouldn't be worth printing on a tea towel.

Well I'll tell you what happened.

I had a look yesterday from the live bookmark and, probably because of the title, I'd confused Miro with someone else and vaguely expected a more literal sketch.

And I keep my screen at a resolution where the whole thing doesn't fit an I had to scroll down.

So it was in those senses a surprise and a revelation respectively. And a very pleasant one.

Doesn't resonate with me...might make a nice wall paper pattern for a child's bedroom, no?
