Born in Barcelona, Joan Miro studied there as well, his art training interupted briefly by an abortive career as a businessman. In 1920, Miro made his first trip to Paris where he met Picasso; in 1923, he joined the Surrealist group. Miro created his own Surrealistic language, using elements of Cubism as well as attempting to tap into unconscious sources of creativity, but never losing touch with the real world. One of the best-known and loved artists of the Modernish era, Miro has had major retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim; there is a Miro Foundation in Barcelona.
