Bibliography: Joan Mirò. Les Livres Illustrés, Patrick Cramer Editeur 1989, n.195 Born in Barcelona in 1893, Joan Miró was a Spanish painter, engraver, sculptor and a member of the Surrealist movement. Certainly one of the most dynamic and polyvalent figures on the 20th Century arts scene, Miró went through various creative phases but was always guided by the “instinctive strength of gestures”. Engraving was an important part of Miró’s artistic opus and he always considered graphics as a universe governed by its own laws, on equal footing with painting and sculpture.

About the Artist

Joan Miró

With his wide-ranging oeuvre, comprising strikingly original paintings, prints, ceramics, sculptures, metal engravings and murals, Catalan modernist Joan Miró (1893–1983) was a critical force in moving 20th-century art toward complete abstraction. Although often considered an early Surrealist because of his nonobjective imagery and evocation of the subconscious, he defies neat categorization. Miró’s identity is largely rooted in the city of his birth: Barcelona. To this day, a number of his public artworks can be found there, including the 72-foot-tall statue Dona i Ocell (Woman and Bird), 1983. Female and avian forms, along with bright colors and the theme of Catalan pride, are recurring elements in his work. The radical visual world Miró created with his expressive lines, signature symbols and biomorphic shapes influenced such American Abstract Expressionists as Jackson Pollock and Color Field painters like Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman. Mirò continued to work and experiment until his death at the age of 90 in 1983. Five years before that, he was quoted saying, “I painted these paintings in a frenzy, with real violence so that people will know that I am alive, that I’m breathing, that I still have a few more places to go. I’m heading in new directions.”
