Joan Miro

miroThe legendary Spanish artist Joan Miró was born on April 20, 1893 in Montroig, near Barcelona. He died on Dec. 25, 1983 at his country home 'Son Abrines' not far from Palma de Mallorca, in the Baleares Islands.  While Miró began his studies at a business school, he soon turned to art, studying at the Art Academy of Barcelona, at the Gali Academy (1912-15) and finally at the Free Drawing Academy of Sant Lluch, Barcelona.  Miró moved to Paris in 1921. Towards the end of 1923, his work underwent a breakthrough period and his own symbolic-abstract language appeared. Miró is considered to be one of the most important artists of his time. The poetic vision, dramatism and cheerfulness of his works also show an increasingly fascinated with the earliest primitive art of the cave paintings.
