Catalogue Note

‘The painting must be fertile. It has to give birth to a world. It doesn’t matter if you see flowers in it, figures, horses, as long as it reveals a world, something living.’

(The artist quoted in Joan Miró, 1893-1993 (exhibition catalogue), Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, 1993, p. 426).
