JOAN MIRÓ (1893 – 1983)


The famous, Spanish Catalan Painter and Printmaker Joan Miró i Ferrà was born in Barcelona in 1893. He died in Palma de Mallorca in 1983.

Joan Miró took part in art studies at the “La Llotja” academy in Barcelona at a young age – in addition to his accountant training.


Joan Miró was one of the most celebrated artists of the last century

In 1941 was Miró’s first major museums retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

He was an artist of international reach. Miró combined the abstract art with his own Surrealist fantasy.


The Joan Miró Foaundation in Barcelona has a great collection of 11.000 pieces – Paintings, Graphic Arts and other famous works by this artist.



Joan Miró – Biography



The Spanish-Catalan painter, graphic artist, sculptor and ceramicist Joan Miró is one of the leading artists, yes one of the main representatives of Surrealism. Miró is also known as the „pioneer of modernity“. He was one of the pioneering artists into abstract expressionism. Miró was always looking for the – for him – correct formal language in art.

His Spanish artist colleague Pablo Picasso praised Joan Miró as his successor in surrealism.

Miro already took up the phases of Cubism, Dadaism and Fauvism in his early works. His art teacher Francesc Galí quickly discovered Miró’s unique artistic talent. Joan Miró trained his eye on the work of Antoni Gaudi and on „Catalan Modernism“.

Joan Miró was constantly on the lookout for new means of expression in his artistic work and found good ideas givers in Francis Picabia, who confronted him with Dadaism, and in Guillaume Apollinaire, who impressed Miro with the surrealism of his “pictorial poems”.

The Catalan artist Joan Miró stayed frequently in Paris, where he made numerous artist friendships. His friendships with Pablo Picasso, Hans Arp, André Breton or Alexander Calder and Alberto Giacometti are legendary.



As an artist of Classical Modernism, Joan Miró was among the first to move away from representationalism


In his motifs, the imagination seems to triumph and symbols such as stars, moon, bird, number or woman are gaining in importance; they are simplified to symbolic elements and thereby acquire a magical, speaking character.

After 1945 Miró visited the U.S.A. several times and got to know artists such as Clement Greenberg and Jackson Pollock.

The graphic work of Joan Miró still gives evidence of the refreshing and sometimes colorful uniqueness in his artistic work. In his imaginative compositions, Miró also visualized the sounds of the music, for example, and in some works suggests the calligraphy of the Asian region.

Joan Miró is exhibited as an artist in international collections and museums to this day.
