Lot Details

Edition: 25/30
One of the twentieth century's most prolific and recognized Modern artists, Joan Miró (1893-1983) created pictorial spaces in which he combined imaginative and cosmic elements. Miró employed his characteristic flowing calligraphic style to create a world of abstract, amorphous forms that resemble shorthand signs and symbols. Along with André Masson, Miró was one of the first artists to engage in automatic drawing within the format of the painting process. It was this technique that pushed Surrealism into its own as an independent art movement. Miró's artwork has been displayed in museums and galleries worldwide, gaining international fame and earning great success at auction. Some of the artist's most recent and notably exhibitions include solo shows at The National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (2012); Tate Modern, London, England (2011); and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY (2010)
