Vines and Olive Trees, Tarragona

Joan Miró Spanish

Not on view

With great attention to detail and poetic imagination, Miró painted every tiny leaf, twig, and root of the plants in the foreground, while the mountains in the distance appear wrapped in a transparent fold and mauve light. The artist spent his summers working at his family's farm near Montroig, where he recorded his love for the village and its surroundings in nearly forty landscapes painted between 1914 and 1922.
