Joan Miro’s art rejects the boundaries of surrealism and abstraction and lay bare the renegade artist’s desire to “assassinate” the bourgeois art society through unbridled experimentation.
Hailing from Barcelona, Spain, Miro’s life and work has had a tremendous impact on post-war art. Miro’s famous piece, The Tilled Field (1923), exemplifies the artist’s abstract and politically radical view of his homeland. Joan Miro pieces, including a range of paintings, ceramics, and sculpture, portray a form of surrealism that is almost childlike. Pablo Picasso’s works have been frequently noted as the inspirations behind Joan Miro’s decor.
