A painting never ends, nor does it ever begin, a painting is like the wind: something that always walks, without rest.

Joan Miró is one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century and is considerer one of the main figures of Surrealism. Even though he avoided any artistic movement giving his art a non academic approach. His technical and formal experiments show his relation with the land, the environment, the dreams and his interest in everyday objects. He creates an unique and personal universe.

He started to investigate different disciplines as sculpture, collage, assembly of objects or paintings on masonite. Throughout his artistic career he reflects an interest in the subconscious, memory, fantasy, imagination, the “childish”, poetry and the culture and traditions of Catalonia.

Considered one of the best visual artists of the 20th century, his work is included in great public and private collections of the world, including: 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.
