Item description for Miro by Jacques Dupin...

Jacques Dupin, esteemed French poet and Miró’s friend and collaborator since 1956, is the ultimate authority on the artist. He has organized numerous exhibitions devoted to the artist, and he presides over the association for the protection of his work.
This definitive monograph, written by Miró’s close friend and contemporary, offers personal insight into the life and work of the artist. Rigorously academic, Dupin’s analysis goes much further than a traditional study of the artist’s work: he recounts Miró’s artistic exploration, from sculpture, through graphic work, to costume design. Dupin’s privileged relationship with the Miró family allowed him exclusive access to invaluable information about the artist as well as many documents, such as various projects, sketch pads, and correspondence that were only discovered after Miró’s death. Extensive notes are included at the back of the volume as well as a condensed chronology and a list of Miró’s exhibitions and catalogs.

More About Jacques Dupin

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Born in 1927 in southern France (in the small town of Privas) and raised in northern France (in Saint-Quentin) as well, Jacques Dupin settled in Paris in 1944 and continues to live there. His first book, Cendrier du voyage (1950), was prefaced by Rene Char. By 1952, he had begun working for the magazine Cahiers d'Art. Soon the poet came into contact with numerous artists, including Constantin Brancusi, Pablo Picasso, Victor Brauner, Wilfredo Lam, Alexander Calder, Jean Helion, Georges Braque, Nicolas De Stael, Joan Miro, and Alberto Giacometti. From the 1950s to the present day, Dupin has been a major figure not only in French poetry but also in the contemporary art world, as a critic, expert (notably of Miro's painting), catalogue editor, exhibition organizer, and publisher (at the Editions de la Galerie Maeght). Along with Andre du Bouchet, Yves Bonnefoy, Michel Leiris, Gaetan Picon, Louis-Rene des Forets, and Paul Celan, Dupin founded and edited the important review L'Ephemere, beginning in 1966. His poetic oeuvre is one of the most profound and challenging in contemporary French literature. Besides recent volumes published by the Editions P.O.L., such as Ecart (2000) and especially Coudrier (2006), which is translated here, two comprehensive Gallimard paperback collections, Le Corps clairvoyant (1999) and Ballast (2009), gather much of his earlier work. He was awarded the French National Poetry Prize in 1988, and the Grand Prix de Poesie (attributed by the French Academy) in 2010.

Jacques Dupin was born in 1928.

Reviews - What do customers think about Miro?

Miro Art Book  Dec 30, 2007
I could not find this book in any book store. However, it was easily available through this, and was delivered on a timely basis. The over all experience was very smooth.
The definitive book on Miro  Aug 5, 2007
This is a magnificent art book, written by a leading authority on Miro, replete with high-quality illustrations and served by a brilliant text. Undoubtedly the best available work on the Spanish master, it enables the reader to wander through Miro's oeuvre with almost the same enjoyment as if the paintings were actually before your eyes. The entire career of the painter is covered and the text is historically informative as well as enlightening in its explanations of major works. A must-have in any fine arts library.
