The Picture || Vol. 7 || Joan Punyet Miró, Philippe de Montebello The Picture

    • Arts

In the seventh episode of "The Picture" podcast, gallery director Philippe de Montebello is joined by Joan Punyet Miró, grandson of Spanish master Joan Miró, whose solo exhibition "Miró the Sculptor: Elements of Nature" is currently on view at Acquavella Galleries in New York.

Late in a storied career characterized by a lifelong love of experimentation, Joan Miró dedicated himself to sculpture and, in particular, the creation of hundreds of bronzes, 23 of which are on view at Acquavella. From 1966 until his death in 1983, Miró was unflagging in his aim to explore and redefine the medium of sculpture, telling his friend Alexander Calder at the age of 81: “I am an established painter but a young sculptor.”

"Miró the Sculptor: Elements of Nature" is on view January 13 – February 29, 2020, at Acquavella Galleries: https://www.acquavellagalleries.com/exhibitions/miro-the-sculptor-elements-of-nature
