Born in Barcelona, Spain in 1893, Joan Miro studied at the Academy of Barcelona and later at the Academy of Francisco Gali, where he was influenced by the Fauves, Impressionists and Cubists. Miro departed for Paris in 1919 where he befriended many great artists, including Pablo Picasso. Miro was also part of the artist group that signed the first Surrealist Manifesto in 1924.
“The spectacle of the sky overwhelms me. I am overwhelmed when I see a crescent moon or the sun in an immense sky. In my artwork there are often tiny forms in vast empty spaces. Empty spaces, empty horizons, empty plains – everything that has been stripped bare has always made a strong impression on me." - Joan Miro
