My father-in-law is a great fan of Joan Miro. The Spanish Catalan artist was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1893. His canvases are filled with almost calligraphic strokes of color, reminiscent of folksy doodles. His surrealist and abstract forms are both modern and yet, somehow very ancient…almost like drawings found at the paleolithic Lascaux Caves in France.
Miro created a series of paintings known as peinture-poésie, these wild forms contained loosely brushed fields of tone, and were inspired by art’s relationship to language, particularly poetry. Very cognizant of color choice, he once wrote of the color blue, “ceci est la couleur de mes rêves” (this is the color of my dreams).

For me an object is something living. This cigarette or this box of matches contains a secret life much more intense than that of certain human beings. — Joan Miro
