Joan Miró

I enjoyed Miró's art, but didn't appreciate the full impact of his career until we visited his the La Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona. So, I was pretty excited to see that MoMA had an exhibition of his work from 1927 to 1937 through January 12. I was even more excited that Slate developed a Miró slideshow to try to save me the trip into the City. (although MoMA's online version of the exhbition is so thorough that the SLate piece is really just the Reader's Digest version of the exhibit)

I think that an online version of an art retrospective is a poor substitute for real world viewing and interacting with the artwork itself. But, I'm glad to know about the slideshow so I can appreciate it from a distance.
