Joan Miró: Painting and Anti–Painting 1927–1937
November 2, 2008–January 12, 2009
This work is one of two of Miró's 1930 wood and metal constructions that are known to have survived. These constructions were made from pieces of wood that could easily have been found at a carpentry shop. Sharp nails are hammered through the red wooden circle at the top left of this composition. Their tips aim outward in an aggressive challenge to traditional artistry and figuration.
