Paintings Based on Collages are part of the exhibiit at the Museum of Modern art...If you ever wondered where Miró got his ideas or source material for his shapes, take a look at these collages and paintings. MoMA states that "Each of the collages features an array of mechanically reproduced illustrations cut from catalogues, magazines, and newspaper advertisements".
