Joan Miró: Birth of the World

Museum of Modern Art, New York

24 Feb - 15 Jun 2019

In The Birth of the World (1925), Miró created a new visual language expressing Surrealist notions about chance and the unconscious. This painting is considered here both in its own right and as a stepping stone to Miró’s later works, such as the ‘savage paintings’ of the 1930s. Find out more from MoMA’s website.
