Painted bronze

Fundació Joan Miró

In early 1967 Miró began to introduce colour in his sculpture.
In the painted bronze sculptures, the metal is concealed by a coat of bright colour.
In spite of their volume, the eye of the painter can be discerned in his three-dimensional pieces: colour differentiates each component, and the frontal view dominates the other perspectives.
The meaning of any object used as an integral part of a sculpture is transformed through its specific shape and its position in the piece.
