Joan Punyet

Joan Punyet Miró has set out to paint a picture of Miró’s love affair with music. For it cannotbe called by any other name, even if at times it played second fiddle to his other muse: poetry.Punyet has culled documents relating to Miró’s friendship with some of the leading composersand musicians of his day; including letters, notes, drawings, doodles or record covers—anything that casts light on the Catalan master’s rarer side. Not only has Successió Miró’sarchive been turned inside out in search of “proof ”—some which appears in print for the firsttime—, but numerous individuals and institutions—in Spain and abroad—have also sharedvaluable material, both graphic and written, that will further conjure a more-mine Miró-Musicthat move us.
