In 1958, artist Joan Miró and critic Yvon Taillandier sat down for an in-depth discussion on Miró´s life and work. Their conversation, one of the most illuminating and insightful looks into Miró´s philosophy and creative process, was first published in a limited edition of seventy five copies in 1964. Though long out of print, this bilingual ´treasure,´ in the words of Maria Popova, ´remains the most direct and comprehensive record of Miró´s ideas on art.´ This beautiful new edition presents an updated English translation of Miró´s invaluable text in an elegant and striking package. In addition to Taillandier´s original foreword, a new preface by preeminent Miró scholar Robert Lubar provides wider context and insight. An appendix includes the original French text in its entirety. Joan Miró: I Work Like a Gardener brings to life the words and work of one of the most beloved and influential artists of the twentieth century
The everyday world, sentimental landscapes, holiday locations, the working environment, battlegrounds, naval zones or nature reserves? In her study on the history of style and motif history, Nina Hinrichs takes a deeper look at the artistic representations of the North Sea and of the mud flats between the end of the 19th Century up to the mid-20th Century. In the first section, she examines works of art that are mostly interlinked with the national, political and ideological aspects of German history. The second section, on the other hand, deals with freer artistic conflicts. Some of the artists considered include Emil Nolde, Max Beckmann, Erich Heckel, Franz Radziwill, Käte Lassen, Alfred Bachmann, Hans Bohrdt and Claus Bergen, among others.
