Lot Details

One of the twentieth century's greatest Modern artists, Miro created pictorial space where imaginative and cosmic elements were combined with common symbols from the everyday world. Miró, along with Andre Masson, was one of the first artists to develop automatic drawing as a way to undo previously established techniques in painting. Though Miro chose not to become an official member of the Surrealist group, his automated drawing technique was the beginning of Surrealism as an art movement. Left free to experiment with other artistic styles without compromising his position within the group, Miro pursued his own interests in the art world, expanding on automatic drawing and surrealism, to expressionism and Color Field painting. Miro uses a characteristic flowing calligraphic style creating a world of abstract forms resembling shorthand signs and symbols.
