A painting never ends, nor does it ever begin, a painting is like the wind: something that always walks, without rest.
Considered one of the main figures of Surrealism, Joan Miró is one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century. Nevertheless, he usually tried to avoid any artistic movement, giving to his art a non academic approach. His technical and formal experiments show his strong relation with the land, the environment, the dreams and his interest in everyday objects. He creates a unique and personal universe.
Soon he started to investigate different disciplines such as sculpture, collage, assambleges of objects or painting on masonite. Throughout his artistic career he often reflected a continuous interest in the subconscious, memory, fantasy, imagination, the “childish”, poetry and the culture and traditions of Catalonia, his homeland.
Considered one of the best visual artists of the 20th century, his work is included in great public and private collections of the world such as the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the MoMA, the Metropolitan; the National Gallery in Washington; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
