Joan Miro on art and gardens
Quelques fleurs pour des ami
Joan Miro wrote "I think of my studio as a vegetable garden. Here there are artichokes, over there potatoes. The leaves have to be cut so the vegetables can grow. At a certain moment you must prune. I work like a gardener or a winegrower. Everything takes time. My vocabulary of forms for example did not come to me all at once. It formulated itself in spite of me. Things follow their natural course. They grow, they ripen, you have to graft; you have to water, as you do for lettuce. Things ripen in my mind."
