Joan Miro (1893 - 1983)

Joan Miro (1893 – 1983) was a Catalan Spanish painter, sculptor and ceramicist born in Barcelona. Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride. Miro always expressed a contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society and famously declared an ‘assassination of painting’ in favor of upsetting the visual elements of established painting.
