Dear Art Educators,

Here is a wonderful presentation on Miro for your enjoyment.

Joan Miro: Painting and Anti-Painting, 1927-1937

site requires Macromedia FlashPlayer

From Scout Report:

>> The [Museum of Modern] Art's online exhibition: Joan Miro: Painting and
Anti-Painting 1927-1937 is a great-looking website. Miro's work can be
viewed in several different ways. Click on "Chronology" at the bottom of
the page, and you'll see a timeline with paintings, collages, assemblages
from the exhibit, as well as ones not in the exhibit. Roll over a work and
you'll get the title, click on the work and you'll get a description of it,
and be able to zoom in on the image of the work. With the high quality
close-up you can see the brush strokes on the canvas. By clicking on
"Series," at the bottom of the page, you can see his works divided up by
series, and by rolling over the works you can see the series titles, such as
"Paintings Based on Collages", "Constructions and Objects", and "Small
Paintings on Masonite and Copper". Visitors shouldn't miss looking at the
collages, and the paintings based on them, side-by-side in "Paintings Based
on Collages". Another approach to categorizing Miro's works is by "Relative
Size." Laid out much like a timeline, but neither in date order or
ascending (or descending) size, the visitor can click on each work to read
its description. Finally, at the bottom left of the page, you'll find
"Filter", where you can choose within Methods, Supports, Mediums, and
Materials, the filters you want for the content of the site. For instance,
you can choose to see only "collages", done on "masonite" using "tempera"
and "printed paper". After you choose the filters, click again on "Series",
"Chronology", "Relative Size", or "Index", and see only those works that fit
the criteria of the filters you selected. [KMG]
