The Policeman



A friend showed me this painting titled "The Policeman" by Joan Miró. The forms inside the painting are ambiguous, and make one question the title of the piece. The viewer looks to the title for context, but strains to use it while viewing the painting. The separation of colors make each one distinct and seem important, causing one to question their purpose. It is hard to be fully absorbed into the world of the painting, but it still seems to be striving toward a connection with the viewer.
