WOMAN IN FRONT OF THE SUN In this painting, executed by the Spanish artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), a tall, erect woman is trying to touch the bright red Sun, while holding a red ball or star in another hand. The luminous Sun sends out rays of hope in the surrounding darkness, linking our life-sustaining star to the Earth. Many of Miró's paintings represent terrestrial forms set against the powerful red disk of the Sun, as well as against the stars of the night sky. (Private collection.)
