Joan Miró: The Ladder of Escape

L. St. James reviews the exhibition Joan Miró: The Ladder of Escape on view at Tate Modern through September 11, 2011.

St. James writes: "The thirteen rooms of the Tate's exhibit serve as testament to the artist's sensitivity to the world around him and as a reminder that even for a most revered Surrealist, 'the ladder of escape' toward creativity - a title that the exhibition has aptly borrowed from among Miró’s most utilized titles - is nonetheless deeply rooted in reality."
