Joan Miro - Spain

Park West Artist: Blue Chip Spanish artist Joan Mir贸 was a seminal figure in 20th-century avant-garde painting. The Spanish artist鈥檚 innovative use of line, organic shapes, and color represents a major contribution to Surrealism. Representative of his ability to conjure evocative space鈥擬ir贸鈥檚 famed triptych Blue I,II,II (1961), portrays a floating world using only blue, orange, and black. 鈥淟ittle by little, I've reached the stage of using only a small number of forms and colors,鈥 the artist reflected. 鈥淚t's not the first time that painting has been done with a very narrow range of colors. The frescoes of the tenth century are painted like this.鈥 Born on April 20, 1893 in Barcelona, Spain, the artist first studied commerce before defying his parents and enrolling at the art academy in his hometown. In 1919, Mir贸 moved to Paris where he fell into the Surrealist milieu, befriending Andr茅 Breton, Max Ernst, Jean Arp, and Andr茅 Masson. Mir贸鈥檚 work profoundly influenced several American painters, including Arshile Gorky and Mark Rothko. The artist died at age 90 on December 25, 1983 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Fundaci贸 Joan Mir贸 in Barcelona, a museum dedicated to the artist and his legacy.
