Size: 4 ft 10 in x 6 ft 7 in (1.47 m x 2.01 m)

Beautiful Vintage Scandinavian Joan Miró Tapestry By Joan Miró, Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: 1960Joan Miro was a Spanish painter and artist who was known for his style that combined Abstract and Surrealist styles. This Scandinavian modern rug was created in 1960 and depicts one of his works. He is known for his deep and emotional work.

In his work, Miro tried to capture the tension between his own poetic and fanciful impulses and his view of what he saw as the harshness of the modern world. Each stroke of the paintbrush that was the model for this carpet was meant to convey this dramatic tension. The soft, curvy lines contrast with the quick, decisive strokes. Each stroke is an expression of emotion caught on canvas.

Miro created numerous murals, sculptures, and tapestries for public spaces. Throughout his career, Miro’s style changed and transformed, but not so much through the influence of other artists, but through his own personal journey. In his early career, he was influenced by the work of Paul Klee, Surrealists, and Dadaists of the 1920s. However, by the midcentury, his unique style had developed into more abstract forms that are a pure expression of emotion.

This piece is titled “The Dream” and is a signed piece. It is an abstract piece in wool that uses a simple color palette in monochromatic colors. It uses red, blue, yellow, and green on a white background. The colors represent the primary colors, but the colors that he selected are not the true primary colors. This choice of color enhances the surreal qualities of the work.

The subject itself is interesting. Many times, Miro took the abstraction of form to such an extreme that the subject is no longer recognizable. It is difficult to determine whether the solid yellow edge should be considered the top or the bottom of the piece.

This piece stretches the imagination as much for the viewer as it did for the artist. When viewed with the yellow band at the top, one could easily imagine abstract Japanese writing figures or an animal such as a snail. When viewed in the opposite direction, the yellow center figure takes on a more human form, and other smaller figures could represent small animals. This mysterious subjectivity is one of the main characteristics of Miro’s work.

This is a classic piece that would be an excellent addition to an ultra-modern, Scandinavian modern, or minimalist space. It shows the classic style for which this iconic artist is known. It is the perfect piece for a midcentury collection.
