Drawn to the Tramontana mountains’ most inaccessible and least frequented landscapes, Mir explored the drama of the peaks and canyons between Puerto de Sóller and Pollença. The ensuing canvases that he completed of this isolated region reflect an expressive abandon that abstracts the beauty of the landscape, capturing the wild terrain through an explosive range of brilliant colour harmonies.(Sotheby’s)
