Miro siesta

In Siesta (1925), by Joan Miró, small shapes float on a sky-blue background. It is the immense space of dreams, where a thin calligraphy of lines and signs waves like traces of reality. It is also the infinite space where all senses dissolve and merge freely.

Quite strict in his daily rituals, Miró did not relinquish his “Mediterranean yoga”, a five-minute nap he took after lunch, before resuming work.
