I'm Going To Smash Their Guitar
Hardcover ISBN: 1903470226
This book is the English-language edition of an exhibition only at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, March-June 2004. Memorable exhibitions at the Grand Palais in 1974 and in Barcelona and New York in 1993 sought to embrace the entirely of an oeuvre that developed across more than sixty years, but the intention here is to scrutinize and document the most important years of Miro's art, his self-questioning formation and his first and finest masterpieces.
