Joan Miro, "Birth of the World" (MoMA)

Recommended Posts

Worth seeing of course, but falls between two stools. It's not a comprehensive retrospective, as it's missing too many masterpieces.  Nor does it concentrate on any particular period or theme, that I could see.  It's certainly not a study of works surrounding or leading up to the "Birth of the World" painting.*  So it's kind of a selected Miro, which is no bad thing, and some of the paintings are just honestly really funny.
*I see the MoMA website says it "situates" that painting "in relation to other major works by the artist," but this is flummery.
