(*) (*) Joan Miró (1893-1983) was born in Barcelona, where he grew up and began his artistic studies. He studied in the La Llotja academy against the will of his parents, who wanted him to work in a more traditional way. Later he studied at the Escola d'Art de Francesc Galí and met the Fauves and Cubists.
His emotional landscapes, those that form him as a person and an artist, are essentially Mont-roig, Paris, Mallorca and later New York and Japan. Mont-roig, a small town in the Baix Camp region, will be the counterpoint to the intellectual upheaval that lives in Paris, where he moved in the 1920s with the surrealist poets and the most creative artists of his time. There he got to know Arp, Magritte, Brancusi and Giacometti and exhibited together with Dalí, Tanguy, Meret Oppenheim and Max Ernst in various exhibitions on Dadaism and Surrealism.
The stimulus of abstract expressionism was discovered in New York in the 1940s. Later, in 1956, in the midst of World War II, Joan Miró left his exile in France and settled in Palma de Mallorca, a refuge and work space, where his friend Josep Lluís Sert designed the workshop he had always dreamed of. There he focused on sculpture and ceramic work, until his death in 1983.
His roots in the landscape of Mont-roig first and that of Mallorca later will be decisive in his work. The link with the land and interest in everyday objects and the natural environment will be the background of some of his technical and formal investigations. Miró flees from academicism, in the constant search for a global and pure work, not attached to any specific movement. Contained in the forms and in the public demonstrations, it is through the plastic fact that Joan Miró shows his rebellion and great sensitivity to the political and social events that surround him. This contrast of forces will lead him to create a unique and highly personal language that places him as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
