Miro Throw Pillows are inspired by Catalan artist Joan Miro, who had a surreal, free-spirited, and unrestrained vision of art, eschewing conventional methods, and blazing his own path in brilliant color and wild shapes across the canvas. This contemporary throw pillow cover captures that same vibrant spirit in spirals of hand-stitched Kashmiri wool, coming fair trade from India.
Appreciate and enjoy the Libelle Mit Roten Fluge. In Eine Schlange Jagend, the red dragon with wings (dragonfly), hand-embroidered in wool on the front of the pillow cover. In joyful rebellion against convention, Spanish Surrealist Joan Miro’s art exudes an uninhibited childlike freedom of expression. Drawing inspiration from 1920’s Paris’ counterculture, his art is filled with absurdity, here, well copied by the highly skilled embroiderer of India.
