Joan Miró

Joan Miró

Born in: 1883

Spain

Famous artist

A Catalan painter by excellence, Joan Miró was born in Barcelona in 1893 and died on 25th December, 9 years later in Palma de Majorque in 1983. His homeland meant a lot to him and had an influence on his art, whether it was through paintingsculpture, engraving or ceramics.

He was quickly immersed in the creative world with his father, a jeweler and mother a cabinet maker. Joan Miró began with a commerce school, encouraged by his father, before giving up this career in order to take evening lessons at the Fine arts school of Llotja, Barcelona. In 1912, adamant to become a painter, he joined the Galli Academy in Barcelona, directed by Francisco Galli, a trained architect, and discovered the developing great artistic trends in Europe.

Initially, Joan Miró displayed a style of painting, that was related to fauvism then cubism and expressionism. It was only when he arrived in Paris in 1919, that he felt fulfilled artistically speaking, and turned towards fantasy for good. He became friends with artists like Max Jacob, Antonin Artaud, Tristan Tzara and André Masson. A group of emerging artists who yielded to aesthetic conventions and were open towards a new language. Once he freed himself from requirements and conventional methods, Joan Miró was able to reveal through simplicity.

Fascinated by the subconscious, he naturally rubbed shoulders with a group of surrealists in 1924. His several gouache partners were called André Breton, Paul Eluard, and Philippe Soupault. He enjoyed their off-the-wall humor, playful and provocative mind. Therefore he had free time for spontaneity and a childish mind.

His participation touched its peak in 1925 during the "Surrealist painting" exhibition. A collective exhibition with Marx Ernst, Paul Klee and Man Ray at the Galerie Pierre in Paris, where he presented his « Carnaval d'Arlequin »painting, and made a huge impact. His painting « La Naissance du Monde » in 1925 was also a big hit and materialized the bridge between Miró's original Catalan land and his Parisian blossoming.

It was in 1928 that Miró's relationship with the surrealist movement became complicated. Gradually, there were political tensions between the acolytes until 1930. Some of the members were open about supporting the Communist Party and the others preferred to depict their struggle through painting. Slowly, Miró withdrew and devoted himself to collages, giant sculptures and ceramics.
