Miro's Dream of Creation.
The son of an artisan, Joan Miro was bom in Catalonia 100 years ago. Painter, poet, ceramist, print-maker and sculptor, Miro created a mythical world of elemental creatures and symbolic forms, half recognisable, half invented.
Richard Calvocoressi , Keeper of the Scottish National Gallery of Modem Art in Edinburgh, celebrates Miro's centenary and explores the career and achievement of a man who possessed at once a peasant's unselfconscious simplicity and one of this century's most fertile artistic imaginations. With contributors including grandson Juan Punyet Miro and Desmond Morris, archive recordings of Miro, and Perran Audi as the artist. Producer Judith Bumpus
