biography of Joan Miró (Joan Miró i Ferrà)

Together with Picasso and Dalí, Catalan artist Joan Miró was the third element in the leading triumvirate of modern Spanish art. Miró was a painter, sculptor, ceramicist and illustrator. He was well-known for his richly-coloured, biomorphic style including fantastic shapes and dreamlike creatures, which he started to develop in 1923 and are regarded as part of the abstract surrealist movement. Miró studied in Barcelona, and from 1919 onwards spent regular extended periods in Paris, where he was inspired by the work of the Dadaists and surrealists. Although Miró never considered himself one of them, André Breton called him ‘the greatest surrealist of us all.’
