Miró produced his first bronze sculptures at the end of the 1940s, after having worked with clay and ceramics alongside Josep Llorens Artigas. Over the next three decades, Miró transposed into bronze this art of assembly initiated during his surrealist period, taking found objects with suggestive shapes and using them to create poetic and burlesque figures that echo his paintings. He went on to produce more than 300 original works, which today are exhibited in the greatest museums in the world. Galerie Lelong, which represents the Estate of Miró, has brought together for this exhibition a very representative selection of small bronzes.
All of these sculptures are included in the catalogue raisonné, Miró Sculptures, written by Emilio Fernandez Miró and Pilar Ortega Chapel, published by Galerie Lelong and Successió Miró.
