MIRO, Joan

Joan Miró i Ferrà (20 April 1893 – 25 December 1983) was a Catalan (Spanish) painter, sculptor, and ceramist born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain to the family of a Goldsmith and Watchmaker. His work has been interpreted variously 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 the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods and his desire to "kill", "murder", or "rape" them in favor of more contemporary means of expression.
