Born in Barcelona, Joan Miro studied there as well, his art training interupted briefly by an abortive career as a businessman. In 1920, Miro made his first trip to Paris where he met Picasso; in 1923, he joined the Surrealist group. Miro created his own Surrealistic language, using elements of Cubism as well as attempting to tap into unconscious sources of creativity, but never losing touch with the real world. One of the best-known and loved artists of the Modernish era, Miro has had major retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim; there is a Miro Foundation in Barcelona.
Miro started his experiments in lithography in 1929, and made prints throughout his career, as well as paintings, sculpture, collages, and ceramics. Joan Prats was an art dealer in Barcelona and great friend and patron of Miro. Prats was instrumental in helping Miro publish some of his most significant printmaking projects.
