Romanesque (comparative more Romanesque, superlative most Romanesque)

    • 2006, Janis Mink, Joan Miró, →ISBN, page 30-31:
      In The Farm, Miró uses some aspects of Romanesque style. For example, the size of various details does not accord with nature and perspective, but rather with Miró's feeling about their importance.
