Joan Miró was a Catalan painter, sculptor, engraver and ceramist. A major figure in twentieth century art, Joan Miró claimed absolute freedom throughout his life, escaping any convention - cubist, surrealist, abstract - that might have confined him.
In 1920, he moved to Paris, which was then the artistic and intellectual center of the world. It was there that he befriended artists like Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, and other members of the Surrealist movement. Inspired by these influences, Miró developed his unique style, characterized by organic forms, vibrant colors, and a symbolic language.
Miró’s art was deeply influenced by his native Catalonia, as well as by the realm of imagination, dreams, and the collective unconscious. His paintings and drawings often depicted a poetic and fantastical world, inhabited by strange creatures and mysterious symbols.
