Are you curious? So nothing better than to know more about this surrealist artist to stir up curiosity … what will Maria Dolores launch?
Spanish Miró, one of the abstract surrealism leaders, settled in Paris in 1920 and got in touch with artists (among them Picasso) and influencers, where he managed to put some paintings in private collections – but with no success in sales.
After the euphoria of arriving in Paris, Miró began to observe the Parisian artistic medium with a more critical and detailed vision. Great historians qualify the years that Miró spent in Paris, in Rue Blomet, in the spanish sculptor Pablo Gargalho rental atelier, as a spectacular phase of his career.
And it was in Paris that for nine months, eight hours a day, Miró painted “La Granja“, one of his most famous works and full of interpretations. This work was acquired by nothing less than Ernest Hemingway, who bought it because he saw in it the Catalan landscape and mentality. Hemingway used all of his savings to acquire the work, and later offered the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
