Animated Landscape

Joan Miró Spanish

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 912

The free-floating fantasy and delicate calligraphic lines of Miró's painting show the influence of the Surrealist circle. In the 1920s the artist became part of the group of artists, critics, and poets. As Miró recalled later: "As for Breton and Eluard...they ignored my existence until my painting freed itself in the direction of poetry and dreams."
