Figur Gegen Rote Sonne II, c. 1950 by Joan Miró
Spanish surrealist Joan Miro (1893 -1983) paints with childlike exuberance in joyful rebellion against conventional painting methods. Influenced by the 1920’s Paris counterculture, his art is filled with wonderful absurdity. He often uses primary and secondary colors as well as organic shapes to convey a lively, energetic zest for life – beyond mere child’s play.
