Joan Miró Quote

And then, as you can see, I give greater and greater importance to the materials I use in my work [c. 1936]. A rich and vigorous material seems necessary to me in order to give the viewer that smack in the face that must happen before reflection intervenes. In this way, poetry is expressed through a plastic medium, and it speaks its own language.


In: 'Où allez-vous Miro?', Georges Duthuit in Cahiers d'Art 11, nos. 8-10, 1936
