Joan Miró i Ferrà (April 20, 1893 – December 25, 1983) was a Spanish Catalan painter, sculptor, and ceramicist born in Barcelona. "Among artists of his generation, Miró has long held a leading place, and today is respected throughout Europe and in America for his magnificently personal color, his inventive fantasy and his pernnial freshness of vision." [from the publisher] Miró began to take interest in the object as such, in the form of collages. This was a practice which was to lead to his making of surrealist sculptures. He also experimented with many other artistic forms, such as engraving, lithography, water colors, pastels, and painting over copper.

PRICE: $30.
