Joan Miró « Dutch Interior II » at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice

During his trip to the Netherlands in 1928, Joan Miró was enormously impressed by the Flemish masters.

He returned to Paris, taking numerous reproductions, mostly on postcards, of the great Flemish masters of the 17th century.

Joan Miró was inspired by Jan Steen's « The Dance Lesson » for his painting « Dutch Interior II ».

In this painting, Miró enlarged all human and animal forms and, at the same time, reduced all the objects represented.

Thus, the tiny window, reduced to one small square, at the top of the painting.

Miró desires to put "life" in the foreground.

A show of life and movement and enlargement of the human and animal, sounds and music symbols.

A cheerful painting, alive and full of activity.
