Woman’s HeadJoan Miro1937 
The Spanish Civil War influenced Miro’s art in this painting in which a woman is reaching up to the sky with her mouth in almost a beak. She is seemingly rendered powerless and unnatural because of the war.

On his birthday, here is a visceral, jarring painting by Joan Miro.  Miro’s work was strongly influenced by both Dada and surrealism, with hints of abstract expressionism and color field painting, although he rejected membership to any and all movements.

One Year the Milkweed, 1944, by Arshile Gorky

Happy Arshile Gorky’s birthday, maybe!  (The man was often very vague concerning details of his life, and was known to give different dates of birth in later years.  His year of birth still isn’t concretely known.)
