Joan Miro began his study of art In Barcelona at the age of 14. He visited Paris in 1919, and was influenced by Braque and Picasso, but within a few years was recognised as a Surrealist. Some of his significant works were associated with ballet sets. Miro travelled within Europe and exhibited in Paris and New York before settling for some years in Majorca. Apart from his paintings, Miro worked as a lithographer, designed tapestries and rugs, and worked as a ceramicist and sculptor in wood and stone. We stock a couple of Miro prints at the moment, the abstract work “Blue II” is a newish title that we have imported from an Italian fine art publisher.
