The Tightrope Walker, Joan Miró

The sculpture that is in Tate Modern is is made from a child’s doll, cast in bronze in which the base on which it rests is the cone through which the bronze was poured, while the nails originally held the mould together. In the background Hans Bellmer’s doll photos previously posted. Miro keeps violence and humour somehow connected in this work.
