Notes: While living in Paris after 1919, Miro came under the influence of the Surrealists. Destitute, starved of food and outside sources of entertainment, Miro was plunged into the world of his own subconscious. Le Lever du Jour is typical of Miro's minimalist use of space. It includes flat biomorphic shaped birds, moving in a seemingly gravity-less environment to welcome the dawn of a new day. Curved lines appear and guide the viewer through the composition. Soft washes of color support Miro's emblematic creatures combining the mystical with the primitive and childlike.
