"L'air" (The air)

This remarkable graphic was published in the first issue of the deluxe art review Verve in 1937. Joan Miro was one of four painters who contributed with original lithographs to the magazine's theme "The Four Elements". In the deep, brilliant blue of the sky, Miro gathered his iconic red sun as well as a black star and all sorts of creatures and symbols that seem to float above a volcanic landscape. However, Miro did not completely succeed in giving the impression of weightlessness and lightness to his work. In particular, the two figures on the obviously burnt ground who appear to be quite menacingly, show the influence of the Spanish Civil War on Miro and his work.
