Miquel Barcelo extends the primitivism of Art Brut into a dialogue with prehistoric art. This beautifully printed catalogue documents an exhibition of sculptures and works on paper held at three venues in Avignon—the Palais de Papes, the Musée du Petit Palais and the Collection Lambert—in which Barceló responded to the Quattrocento and Gothic works held in their collections.
Paint as a natural force is the consuming interest of Miquel Barceló, an artist born in Majorca, Spain, who is steeped in a grand realist tradition. His feeling for the past includes an admiration for the lush Spanish still lifes known as bodegónes.
