The Catalan painter and sculptor Joan Miró, like Salvador Dalí and others in the surrealist movement, was galvanized by the theories of André Breton. Intrigued by the idea of plunging into the unconscious, Miró ditched his early investigations of realism, cubism, and naive art to play with geometric, organic, vividly colored forms in striking compositions. Miró hasn't had the same pop-culture impact as Dalí, but his body of work is less encumbered by his contemporary's dogmatism and attention-hogging. Here, you can see his lithographs, posters, and etchings.
