Joan Miro, (1893-1983) Spanish Born April 20 in Barcelona, Catalonia , Spain, sculptor and ceramist, in 1900 Begins primary school at Carrer del Regomir 13, Barcelona, where he attends drawing classes, enrolls at the School of Commerce in Barcelona. At the same time he attends classes at the School of Industrial and Fine Arts (the Llotja) until 1910, The earliest preserved drawings now at the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona, date from this year 1901.

In 1925-1927 Miró made his famous peintures-počmes; in these austere canvases small bits of collage and patches of color are surmounted by the neat script of a few words. In 1948 Miró made his first color lithographs in Fernand Mourlot's print workshop and immersed himself in printmaking.

From 1955 to 1959 he concentrated on printmaking and ceramics,1960s After Miró returned to Europe paintings again began to flow from his studio. Many of Miró's paintings of the 1960s are characterized by the use of a heavy, sweeping and gestural black line. The artist's subjects have been reduced to their essential linear aspect; they have become ideograms. Joan Miró died in Palma de Majorca on December 25, 1893.
