“Tête, oiseau”

Joan Miró

Tête, oiseau" (Head, Bird), sculpted in 1973, is a captivating bronze sculpture by Joan Miró, standing as a testament to the artist's innovative approach to form and symbolism. This piece, with dimensions of 24.8 × 15.7 × 7.5 inches (63 × 40 × 19 cm), is part of a highly exclusive edition of just six, emphasizing its rarity and value within Miró's sculptural oeuvre.

Miró's "Tête, oiseau" embodies the essence of his artistic exploration, merging the abstract with elements of the recognizable world in a form that suggests both a head and a bird. This duality is representative of Miró’s ability to create a visual language that speaks to the subconscious, blurring the lines between the tangible and the imagined. The sculpture's textured surface and fluid shapes invite the viewer into a tactile and visual interaction with the work, characteristic of Miró's later artistic phase where he engaged more deeply with sculpture as a medium
