Book summary

THIS BOOK ON MIRO IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF A SUCCESSFUL BOOK ON AN ARTIST. HIMSELF A PAINTER AND WRITER, THE AUTHOR WALTER ERBEN SUCCEEDED IN ENGAGING HIS GREAT "COLLEAGUE" IN NUMEROUS PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS AT THE ARTIST'S HOUSE IN MALLORCA. IN THESE TALKS MIRO GAVE ERBEN MANY INTERESTING AND INVALUABLE INSIGHTS INTO HIS ART, AS WELL AS HIS OWN INTERPRETATIONS OF HIS MOST SIGNIFICANT WORKS. THE LAST CHAPTER OF THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN BY HAJO DUCHTING, AN ART HISTORIAN AND PAINTER, WHO WAS BORN IN DUSSELDORF IN 1949 AND CURRENTLY LECTURES IN THE HISTORY OF ART AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MUNICH. HE HAS SUPPLEMENTED ERBEN'S TEXT WITH A CHAPTER ON MIRO'S LATER LIFE AS WELL AS NUMEROUS INTERPRETATIONS OF A SELECTED NUMBER OF WORKS.
