Seated Nude Holding a Flower

Joan Miró Spanish

Not on view

The brilliant colors in Miró's early work owe much to Fauve examples, but the details of the bird and flower already show his interest in playful depictions of nature. Painted when he was only twenty-four and still going to art school, the picture was shown at Miró's first one-person exhibition, at the Galeries Dalmau in Barcelona.
