Have a Miró Day!

Have a Miró Day!

Joan Miró, Woman (1934). Miró assigned this pastel the title Woman, aiming for something “unpretentious and very ordinary,” he said, but the work has come to be known as Opera Singer because of the figure’s open mouth and what is often identified as sheet music in her right hand. She is rendered in acidic, highly saturated, and dissonant colours, with flagrantly displayed genitalia.
