Joan Miró early work was influenced by Fauvism. Later he was influenced by fellow Spaniard Pablo Picasso. Although his association with the Surrealists in Paris influenced his primitive style, Miró declined to join any artist’s group to remain free to experiment with any style . He was also a ceramist and painted on glass windows. Miró’s mythology-imagery inspired Alexander Calder. Born 1893 – Died 1983.
