2014-06-ChillidaOnMiro Chillida on Miró, Ordovas Gallery, Savile Row, London, 5 June – 26 July
Display focusing on the close friendship between Eduardo Chillida and Joan Miró, which flourished during summers spent with their families at St Paul de Vence. Among the highlights are a major Miró canvas from 1945, Femme dans la nuit, that has not been exhibited in the UK for 50 years, and an unseen drawing by Miró given to Chillida in 1971. The seven sculptures by Chillida range from a monumental two-metre high work to two small terracotta figures gifted to Miró. Miró’s work is viewed through Chillida’s eyes and letters between the two artists and poetry sent to each other are published in the accompanying catalogue.
