Piet Mondrian´s rigorously geometric paintings in primary colours are icons of the 20th century that had a powerful impact on popular taste in art and design. This volume brings together more than 230 superb paintings with documentary images from the artist´s life. The less-well-known work that Mondrian did in the 30 years before his breakthrough to abstraction-especially his landscape and flower paintings-is remarkably beautiful and to see it arranged chronologically is to enter the mind of an artist who is constantly looking for the next step that will take him from traditional realism to a universal vision of colour and form. The book includes rare photographs of Mondrian´s studios in Paris and New York City as well as reproductions of more than 1,000 known works of Mondrian´s in black and white.

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
