Joan Miro was a Spanish artist born in 1893 in Barcelona, Spain. Miro originally studied at business school as well as art school but after overcoming an extreme typhoid illness he decided to devote the rest of his life to painting. He is best known for his paintings, sculptures, ceramics that are influenced by the seaside views of Barcelona as well as the Surrealist, Cubism and the Fauvist art movements. Works by Joan Miro can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art and many others internationally.
This work is the second of several works made by Miro in collaboration with the revue Cahiers d’Art. Miro has collaborated with and produced works for Cahiers d’Artmultiple times during the run of the Cahiers d’Art revue, from 1926 until its last revue publication in 1960.
The founder of Cahier d’Art, Christian Zervos, was reportedly a large follower and defender of Miro and his ‘unclassifiable’ work.
Work included in 'School of Paris' exhibition, 2019.
