The Tilled Field is an oil painting done on canvas by Joan Miró. It was started in 1923 and completed in 1924. The size of it is 66 x 92.7 cm and it is currently located at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
Joan Miró started this painting in 1923 when he was living on his family’s farm in Montroig, Catalonia. The farm animals, landscape and background provided inspiration for him to create this surreal painting.
The Tilled Field is an expression of Miro’s view of his farm where he grew up. His interest in art as well as animals is present throughout the piece. There are bright colors, cartoon-looking animals and imaginative shapes. Miro also painted flags on this painting to create the message of him being attached to the Catalan cause. Miro used inspiration from the places he traveled and where he grew up to create each and every creature that is featured on this painting.
