Joan Miro Foundation Espai 13 - Eluard, Cramer, Miro - «A toute epreuve», more than a book

Éluard, Cramer, Miró ­- «À toute épreuve», more than a book reconstructs the creative process behind Miró's book based on a collection of poems by Paul Éluard with the same title. The exhibition is part of the Miró. Documents series, whose aim is to use the Fundació's archive to further explore certain aspects of Miró's work.
The layout and execution of À toute épreuve is a reflection of Miró's connection with the poets of the 1920s, which led to major transformations in his visual language. With this book, published by Gérald Cramer in 1958, Miró fulfilled his wish to venture beyond illustrating the poet's words and end up creating an object.

The exhibition will be on view until July 2, 2017
