In 1958, artist Joan Miro and critic Yvon Taillandier sat down for an in-depth discussion on Miro's life and work. Their conversation, one of the most illuminating and insightful looks into Miro's philosophy and creative process, was first published in a limited edition of seventy five copies in 1964. Though long out of print, this bilingual "treasure," in the words of Maria Popova, "remains the most direct and comprehensive record of Miro's ideas on art." This beautiful new edition presents an updated English translation of Miro's invaluable text in an elegant and striking package. In addition to Taillandier's original foreword, a new preface by preeminent Miro scholar Robert Lubar provides wider context and insight. An appendix includes the original French text in its entirety. Joan Miro: I Work Like a Gardener brings to life the words and work of one of the most beloved and influential artists of the twentieth century.

The world-renowned Catalan artist Joan Miro (1893--1983) is known for his abstract and surrealist paintings, prints, sculptures, and ceramics, characterized by biomorphic forms, geometric shapes, and playful abstracted tableaus.
