Carnival of Art

[Carnival of Harlequin, Joan Miró, 1924-25]

"The spectacle of the sky overwhelms me. I'm overwhelmed when I see, in an immense sky, the crescent of the moon, or the sun. There, in my pictures, tiny forms in huge empty spaces. Empty spaces, empty horizons, empty plains - everything which is bare has always greatly impressed me."

-- Joan Miró, 1958, quoted in Twentieth-Century Artists on Art

"I wanna go on the ferris wheel... and I want some cotton candy... I wanna coke... "
