Lot 0012



This lot consists of a hand painted oil on canvas. Done in the surrealist style of Joan Miro (Spanish, 1893-1983). Joan Miro Ferra (20 April 1893 - 25 December 1983) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramicist born in Barcelona. A museum dedicated to his work, the Fundacion Joan Miro was established in his native city of Barcelona in 1975, and another, the Fundacion Pilar i Joan Miro, was established in his adoptive city of Palma de Mallorca in 1981.Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted 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, Miro expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and declared an \"assassination of painting\" in favor of upsetting the visual elements of established painting.
