Romancing Miro, Painting Inspired by Miro by k Madison Moore

Romancing Miro

Inspired by Joan Miro


16 x 20 Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold - Commission

Miro's Game
11 x 14

The above project was inspired by this original,
Miro's Game. Here you can see that this one is designed
around a party and games. The  larger one above 14 x 18
is inspired from Miro's Game but with many changes
 to make it an original for the collector. It does not have
the gaming elements, the ottomans are different as well
as the throw pillows, carpet and many other subtle changes.
Romancing Miro was designed with a similar
theme to Miro's Game.

You can pick  a theme, even if the painting is sold and I
can repaint it for you with the changes you would like to
have or I can design one just for you.

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

I love Miro, his primary colors and his childlike style. I painted a similar room to this
before. My collector loved the room and the painting I used that is similar to Miro's 
of course with my changes. The first was a theme of a gambling party and the aftermath.
My collector is not in to gaming so we decided to make it more os a romantic theme but 
using most of the colors and furniture I used in the first.

I am including a photo of the first so you can see the changes. I do this general idea for 
every similar painting that I repaint. Many collectors find paintings that they like in my
portfolio that have already been sold.  I offer to repaint the painting for them but I like to
make changes so that each one is an original for that collector. If you see something that 
you like that is already sold that you would like to have a similar of, Contact Me with your
ideas and don't forget to mention the titles. Of course I can also design on just for you
with your favorite Master as well. You can check out all of my series on My Portfolio. 
This painting will also live in Brazil.

Miro's Game
Art within Art Series

Joan Miró i Ferrà  (April 20, 1893 – December 25, 1983) was a Spanish Catalan painter, 
sculptor and ceramicist born in Barcelona A museum dedicated to his work, the 
Fundacio Joan Miro, was established in his birth city in 1975.
Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox 
for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan 
pride. In numerous interviews dating from the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and famously
declared an "assassination of painting" in favour of upsetting the visual elements of 
established painting.

"The spectacle of the sky overwhelms me. I'm overwhelmed when I see, in an immense sky, the crescent of the moon, or the sun. There, in my pictures, tiny forms in huge empty
spaces. Empty spaces, empty horizons, empty plains - everything which is bare has always greatlynimpressed me.Joan Miró, 1958, quoted in Twentieth-Century Artists on Art.

In an interview with biographer Walter Erben, Miró expressed his dislike for art critics, saying, "They are more concerned with being philosophers than anything else.
They form a preconceived opinion, then they look at the work of art. Painting merely 
serves as a cloak in which to wrap their emaciated philosophical systems.

In the final decades of his life Miró accelerated his work in different media, producing hundreds of ceramics, including the Wall of the Moon and Wall of the Sun
at the UNESCO building in Paris. He also made temporary window paintings (on glass)
for an exhibit. In the last years of his life Miró wrote his most radical and least known ideas,
exploring the possibilities of gas sculptor and four-dimensional painting.

Today, Miró's paintings sell for between US$250,000 and US$26 million; US$17 million at a U.S. auction for the La Caresse des étoiles (1938) on May 6, 2008, at the time the highest
amount paid for one of his works. In 2012, Painting-Poem
("le corps de ma brune puisque je l'aime comme machatte habillée en vert salade 
comme de lagrêle c'est pareil") (1925) was sold at Christie's London
for $26.6 million.Later that year at Sotheby's in London, Peinture (Etoile Bleue) (1927) brought nearly 23.6 million pounds with fees, more than twice what it had sold 
at a Paris auction in 2007  and a record price for the artist at auction.
