Joan Miro and 20th Century Modernism
June 4- 5, 2015
Early in his career, Joan Miró (pronounced Jwan mr-OH) primarily painted still-lifes, landscapes and generic scenes. But in 1920 Miró made his first trip to Paris, where he met Pablo Picasso, and his work changed forever. While Miro can’t be identified with a single school, he is most often classified as a Surrealist. His artistic career is one of persistent experimentation, in paint, print and sculpture. Join us as we explore one of the most interesting artists of the 20th century.
