Woman's Head. (Joan Miro)

Joan Miro portrays a woman in a really disturbing matter. The artist's abstract distorted work represents a woman looking like a huge and horrible creature. Her head is extremely large, her neck is barely visible, her body is out of proportion. With the uses of black, symbolizing darkness, and red and yellow symbolizing fire, Miro's perception of a woman leads toward madness, ugliness, mental instability (looking at the creature's gestures) and dehumanization.
