This weekend I was visiting my family in Frankfurt, Germany, and went to an event on Saturday morning with my daughter. It was an exhibition, at the Schirn Galerie, of the works of the Spanish artist, Joan Miro, who lived from 1893 to 1983, and was an artist, a sculptor, and in later life did lots of murals and very large paintings.

In later life he did a lot of abstract paintings, especially his blue series -a lot of these paintings look so simple, like the black and white triptych below, but nevertheless they are very striking and original.
Here is a sample of some of his paintings we saw at this event, check out more posts over at Cee’s place.
