Story / Additional InfoJoan Miro (1893 - 1983). Title: Le Cosmonaute. The Cosmanaut. Medium: Original Etching and aquatint, with carborundum and object in releif, in colours, 1969 on Mandeure rag paper, signed by the artist in pencil. Reference: Jacques Dupin “Miro engraver” Volume II (Catalogue raisonee) Number 479. Published by: Maeght Editeur, ParisPrinted by: Arte Adriene Maeght, Paris. Note: By convention, an astronaut employed by the Russian Federal Space Agency (or its Soviet predecessor) is called a cosmonaut in English texts. At the time this piece was made there was considerable interest in Space Exploration. Yuri Gagarin became the first human to journey into outer space, achieving a major milestone in the Space Race his capsule, Vostoick 1 completed one orbit of Earth on 12 April 1961 and American and Russian teams competed with each other for new achievements. Doubtless Miro was enthralled by these developments and this occasioned the tilting of this work.Joan Miró rejected the constraints of traditional painting, creating works “conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness,” as he once said. Widely considered one of the leading Surrealists, though never officially part of the group, Miró pioneered a wandering linear style of Automatism—a method of “random” drawing that attempted to express the inner workings of the human psyche. Miró used colour and form in a symbolic rather than literal manner, his intricate compositions combining abstract elements with recurring motifs like birds, eyes, and the moon. “I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music,” he said.

Joan Miro - Spain

Joan Miró was a seminal figure in 20th-century avant-garde painting. The Spanish artist’s innovative use of line, organic shapes, and color represents a major contribution to Surrealism. Representative of his ability to conjure evocative space—Miró’s famed triptych Blue I,II,II (1961), portrays a floating world using only blue, orange, and black. “Little by little, I've reached the stage of using only a small number of forms and colors,” the artist reflected. “It's not the first time that painting has been done with a very narrow range of colors. The frescoes of the tenth century are painted like this.” Born on April 20, 1893 in Barcelona, Spain, the artist first studied commerce before defying his parents and enrolling at the art academy in his hometown. In 1919, Miró moved to Paris where he fell into the Surrealist milieu, befriending André Breton, Max Ernst, Jean Arp, and André Masson. Miró’s work profoundly influenced several American painters, including Arshile Gorky and Mark Rothko. The artist died at age 90 on December 25, 1983 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, a museum dedicated to the artist and his legacy.
