About the Artist

A Spanish painter, sculptor and ceramist, Miro studied at the Barcelona Ecole des Beaux Arts and at the Academie Gali. In 1919 he visited Paris and became a friend of Picasso. In 1925 he moved to Paris and developed his unique style while under the influence of the Surrealist poets and writers. His art often contains organic forms accompanied by sharp lines and splashes. Miro and Kandinsky were among the forerunners of expressive abstraction. Miro won the 1954 Venice Biennale printmaking prize and in 1980 he received the Gold Medal of Fine Arts from King Juan Carlos of Spain. Toward the end of his life he created hundreds of ceramics works of art including the Wall of the Moon and Wall of the Sun at the UNESCO building in Paris. Described by Surrealism founder Andre Breton as "the most Surrealist of us all", though Miro never formally joined the Surrealist movement.
