Joan Miró

*1893 in Barcelona – 1983 in Palma, Spain

The unique pictorial world of Joan Miró

In addition to his wonderful paintings, sculptures and ceramics, Miró left posterity an incomparably rich oeuvre of original graphic works that have lost none of their refreshing originality to this day. The celestial bodies, sun, moon and stars in their most diverse manifestations characterize Miró’s work. In addition, he imaginatively tried to visualize music and sounds and combined biomorphic forms and whimsical dream creatures with Asian calligraphy.

Biography

Born in Barcelona in 1893, the painter, graphic artist and sculptor Joan Miró is considered one of the main representatives of surrealism and a pioneer of abstract expressionism. Based on Catalan folk art, his early works show influences of Cubism and Fauvism. From the early to mid-1920s, he underwent a fundamental change of style in Paris, influenced by the Dadaism and Surrealism art movements prevailing there, which led him away from representationalism. As a representative of classical modernism with his imaginative pictorial motifs, Miró is one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. His magical symbols of the moon, stars, bird, eye and woman are among the best-known elements of his art.
