About the Artist
Joan Miró is regarded as one of the most original artists of the 20th century, who often worked with a limited palette, yet the colors he used were bold and expressive. His mature style evolved from the tension between his fanciful, poetic impulse and his vision of the harshness of modern life. Miró worked extensively in lithography and produced many murals, tapestries, and sculptures for public spaces. Despite his fame, he continued to devote himself exclusively to looking and creating. Joan Miró was born in Barcelona, Spain on April 20, 1893. His father was an artisan watchmaker and goldsmith. Based on his parents’ wishes, Miró attended a commercial college, then found work as a clerk in an office for a short period of time. Unfulfilled by his profession, Miró asked for his parent’s permission to allow him to attend art school in Barcelona in 1912. There, he gained great experience learning under Francisco Galí.
