My dining companion has been comparing the plating of dishes we are being served to Miró paintings. I had been meaning, for a while to look up some of his art. His full name is Joan Miró i Ferrà and he's a Spanish painter, sculptor & ceramicist, born in 1893, and he died in 1983.
Here's some of the recent plates, courtesy of Restaurant Sojourn, Pello, Restaurant Atelier, Astral, Tabou and Restaurant Atelier (in that order).
It seems an accurate comparison, no?
