Title: Joan Miró – Portrait of Mrs Mills in 1750 (after Constable)
Year Painted: 1928

Joan Miró’s “”Portrait of Mrs Mills in 1750 (after Constable)”” is a captivating artwork painted in 1928 that showcases the artist’s masterful ability to blend two distinct artistic styles – surrealism and classical landscape painting.

The landscape appears fragmented and abstract, with bold colors and organic shapes that convey a sense of spontaneity and emotion.

Miró’s decision to reinterpret a work from the 18th-century Romantic era shows his admiration for the art of the past while pushing its boundaries into the modern era. By incorporating his unique visual language of symbols, biomorphic forms, and spontaneous brushwork, Miró transforms a traditional portrait into a playful and imaginative composition.
