Born in 1893, Joan Miró is one of the most important figures in the art scene of the 20th century. Associated with many art movements, specially abstraction, surrealism and symbolism, Miro’s images came from his memory, his subconscious, and dreams. These images were created in a unique style where color was the primary focus. Through paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, tapestry and ceramics Miró took a different approach to art influencing the art world of modern and contemporary times.
Joan Miró was awarded many prizes and his works are part of the most important private and public collections: Museum of Modern Art New York; Guggenheim Museum, NY; National Art Gallery, Washington; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Tate Gallery, London; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; Fine Arts Museum, San Francisco; Art institute of Chicago.
