Joan Miro Cookie | Art Projects for Kids

June 28, 2009

Joan Miró i Ferrà (April 20, 1893-December 25, 1983) was a Spanish Catalan painter, sculptor, and ceramist born in Barcelona. Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride. In numerous interviews dating from the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeoise society, and famously declared an “assassination of painting” in favor of upsetting the visual elements of established painting.
