The Beautiful Bird Revealing the Unknown to a Pair of Lovers (from the Constellation series)
Artist: Joan Miro
Completion Date: 1941
Style: Surrealism
Series: Constellations
Genre: abstract painting
Gallery: Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA
In his Constellations series of 1940-1, Miró set about to create new challenges in composition and then to solve them. One from this series of ten multi-media works on paper, The Beautiful Bird Revealing the Unknown to a Pair of Lovers, features a reducedpalette, including a solid background that emphasizes the simplified forms and lines that together mimic the appearance of a complex constellation in the night sky. In the midst of producing this series, Miró was forced to flee with his family from France to Mallorca to escape advancing German troops. Evidently the family took little else with them aside from these paintings. The crowded, chaotic feeling of these compositions in some ways echo Miró’sfeelings regarding the violent upheaval in Europe at the time.

Why do people deride brutalist buildings for being built predominately from ‘ugly grey concrete’?
The Trinity Square car park in Gateshead, by Rodney Gordon for the Owen Luder Partnership, gleamed defiantly in the April sun during preparation for its demolition. This was despite over forty years of neglect.
