Being part of a process of study and experimentation, in this composition several strokes made in ink are arranged, resulting in an individual plastic language. This resource was widely used throughout Miró's production, the personal imaginary that the artist created from symbols that he established as a cryptic language of surrealist heritage, but with its own personality, being the protagonist.
Joan Miró istrained in Barcelona, between“La Escuela de la Lonja” and GalíAcademy. Already at the early date of 1918 he made his first exhibition, at the Dalmau Galleries in Barcelona. In 1920 he moved to Paris and met Picasso, Raynal, Max Jacob, Tzara and the Dadaists. There, under the influence of the surrealist poets and painters, his style matures; tries to transpose the surrealist poetry into the visual, based on memory, fantasy and the irrational. From this moment his style begins an evolution that leads him to more ethereal works, in which organic forms and figures are reduced to abstract points, lines and spots of color. In 1924 he signed the first surrealist manifesto, although the evolution of his work, which was too complex, did not allow him to be attached to any specific orthodoxy. His third exhibition in Paris, in 1928, marks his first great triumph: the Museum of Modern Art in New York acquires two of his works. He returned to Spain in 1941, and that same year that museum dedicated a retrospective to him that would mean his definitive international consecration. During the 1950s he experimented with other artistic media, such as engraving, lithography, and ceramics. From 1956 until his death in 1983, he lived in Palma de Mallorca in a sort of internal exile, while his international fame grew. Throughout his life he received numerous awards, such as the Grand Prix of the 1954 Venice Biennale and the Guggenheim Foundation in 1959, the Painting Carnegie in 1966, the Gold Medals of the Generalitat of Catalonia (1978) and of the Fine Arts (1980), and was named Doctor Honoris Causa by the universities of Harvard and Barcelona. Currently its production can be seen at the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona, inaugurated in 1975, as well as in the main contemporary art museums around the world, such as the Thyssen-Bornemisza, the MoMA in New York, the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid, the National Gallery in Washington, the MNAM in Paris or the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo
