Barcelona has birthed a lot of the great artists of all time, and has also been the adopted home of others. Joan Miró i Ferrà is an award winning artist that had a very professional image throughout his long career. Born April 20th 1893, his specialties were mural, sculpture, ceramics and painting. Awards in his name of note are the 1954 Venice Biennale Grand Prize in the Graphic Work category and the 1980 Gold Medal of Fine Arts Spain. Miro’s accomplishments during and after his career did not go unnoticed, and there is a museum built in his name in Barcelona that goes by Fundació Joan Miró. As he was a worldwide phenomenon, there is also another museum dedicated to him in Palma de Mallorca named Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró. Specializing in Surrealism Joan Miro paintings, the painter was about fighting the conventional and moved towards innovation early on in his career. While this may have upset some traditional critics, his talent quickly spoke for itself, even in the early parts of his career. Famously, Miró's Chicago is a sculpture that is across the street from the Chicago Picasso, with both of them in the city of Chicago. It is almost like a silent duel between two of the biggest superstar artists of their time.
Analysis of Joan Miro PaintingsSome of the best paintings from Spain can get lost in the mix with all of the talent from that area. Joan Miro had a lot of hits starting with his abstract painting work. ‘Catalan Peasant with a Guitar’ is a very hypnotic painting that uses blue as the dominant color and doesn’t shy away from being minimalist. It is as abstract as you can get without pushing too much into another movement.
Another Joan Miro painting in the same movement is ‘Woman and Bird in the Night’. It takes a lot of imagination to fully take in what Miro did with this oil painting, since for some people it can come off as too abstract. Because of this it has become one of most critical Joan Miro paintings, and people either love it to death or hate it. The painting using white as its background with few colors doesn’t help the decision, but the creative use of shapes in it really sets it apart.
Femme, oiseaux devant le soleil is a daring abstract painting that looks like modern day graffiti. Although the execution is markedly better, there is no denying the amount of work that went into each stroke. With the only big colors in the Joan Miro painting being red and black, there is a symphony of other colors that blend so well together that they don’t clash at all. It is a very confusing but perfect harmony of shapes, colors and all with the perfect sizes, it's different with salvador dali,

If looking for imaginative Joan Miro paintings in his library, Miro produced a series called ‘Constellations’. Bringing great focus to the images in the sky, he did a wonderful job of putting his own twist on the stars and galaxies in the sky. ‘Figure at Night Guided by the Phosphorescent Tracks of Snails’ is a wordy but very lively painting in the series that was created in 1940. Even though the styles and colors point to Surrealism, the actual movement that it fits in is Abstract. In 1941 he also introduced ‘The Beautiful Bird Revealing the Unknown to a Pair of Lovers’, another Joan Miro painting from the Constellation series. This one would be bolder with its message, and among the many hidden faces was a lot of characters and emotions. It looks like something out of a children’s book but turns into something much more profound.
Hidden gems in his work would go to some of the paintings he did in the Naïve Art style. Basic settings in paintings for sale like ‘House with Palm Tree’ are one of the many in this style that were created in 1918. Using and reusing a lot of colors in this painting, mostly towards sand/brown, it created a nice aura for anyone that looks at it. And to compliment that same style is ‘The Wagon Tracks’ which was created in the same year but gives a different viewpoint of the original painting. There are some good connections in Naïve Joan Miro paintings even though they aren’t considered part of a series.
