Pseudonym: Joan Miró Ferra
Born Apr 20 1893, Barcelona, Spain.
Died Dec 25 1983, Palma de Mallorca, .
Arriving in Paris in 1920, some years the junior of the likes of Picasso and Matisse, Miro had a great deal to catch up on, and his zigzagcourses between the poles of abstraction and surrealism, his handling of cubism (from which he learned a great deal, though he set out “to smash [the Cubists] guitar”), his response to dadism and the fermenting movements of the time, required a pugilistic determination as well as skill and artistic integrity.
