Joan Miro (1893-1983) was a native of Barcelona, Spain, where he received his formal art education at The School of Arts and Crafts (Escola dÕArts and Crafts of Barcelona or the Llotja School). Later he is said to have studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and the Academie Gali. Upon MiroÕs relocation to Paris, he befriended such noteworthy figures as Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, Max Ernst and others. Miro was most recognized for his surrealism style, as well as his bronze sculptures, printmaking, book and poster illustrations, costume design, graphic art designs, ceramics, lithography, etchings and use of fauvism and cubism qualities. His works have been exhibited at the Salon dÕAutomne of 1923 and the 1925 Galerie Pierre exhibition, among others. Miro was later commissioned to create a monumental artwork for the Paris WorldÕs Fair. Among various accolades and awards, perhaps the most astounding was the Guggenheim International Award that was bestowed upon Miro for his mural for the UNESCO building in Paris.

Joan Miro (1893-1983) is a Spanish Catalan artist known for his exuberant and child-like art. Although his work is difficult to place within a particular artistic movement of the time, it is most often associated with Surrealism and Dadaism. His experimental style and pride in his Catalan heritage were huge influences, and although the Spanish Civil War and World War II were two major upheavals over the course of his career, he succeeded in guiding his work away from political state for many years until The Reaper, a politically charged mural that was on display in the Spanish Republican Pavilion during 1937 Paris Exhibition.
