  6. Introducing Blomqvist

    Blomqvist auction house was established in 1870, making them one of the first art dealers in Scandinavia. The house is famed for their exquisite selection of art and antiquities, as well as their fabled exhibition halls where Edvard Munch himself used to show his works during his lifetime. Now, 140 years later, Blomqvist still holds its position as one of the top auction houses in the region.

    Pictured is Spanish artist Joan Miró’s exquisite 1973 work, Oda a Joan Miró, which is currently online for bidding at Blomqvist. A profound balance of sophistication and innocence and a deeply rooted conviction about the relationship between art and nature lie behind Miró’s work and account for the wide appeal that his art continues to have across generations.

  7. Maja Negra

    In Spanish, a "Maja" is a flashy young woman who is a flirt.

    This enormous etching by Modern master Joan Miró certainly has flair- measuring over four feet in length. The arcs are reminiscent of Miro’s famous Moon Bird Sculpture that sits in the the garden of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

  8. Spotlight: Joan Miro

    “I make no distinction between poetry and painting.” -Joan Miro

    In 1893, Joan Miró was born in Barcelona. As the son of a goldsmith, Miró did not grow up in an art-oriented family, but in a business-oriented one. His father was well aware of his own success and expected the same for his son.

    Nevertheless, Miró showed early signs of artistic genius. His first known drawings date back to 1901, and when he was only eight years old, he could already create works of strict Realism.
