Miro page 2

Joan Miro (April 20, 1893 - December 25, 1983) was a Spanish Catalan Painter, sculptor, and ceramist born in Bacelona.

Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride.  In numerous interviews dating from 1930 onwards, Miro expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting the bourgeois society, and famously declared an "assassination of painting" in favor of upsetting the visual elements of established painting.
