THE loss of Miro’s The Reaper was an artistic casualty of the Spanish Civil War.
Alongside Picasso’s Guernica, its genius alerted the world to the horrors being perpetrated by Franco’s rebellion. A painting as a political weapon.
Of course, it appears now, to be lost. But the tireless work of Miro’s grandson Joan Punyet Miro, the Fundacion Miro and Successio Miro ensure the public are able to enjoy Miro’s works and learn about his genius and legacy.
And who knows, the original Reaper may yet reappear to fight another day.
