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. He is considered one of the main figures of Surrealism. 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.
