Joan Miró (Spanish, 1893- 1983) was a prolific painter, printmaker, sculptor, and ceramicist. In 1911, after a terrible attack of typhoid fever, the artist devoted his practice entirely to painting. His early work was influenced by Catalonian art and Roman fresco while his later paintings were characterized by Catalan culture and Surrealism. Miró’s influence as an artist is far reaching, inspiring the art of the American Abstract Expressionist artists such as Calder, Pollock, and Rothko.
