Joan Miro (Spanish (Catalan), 1893-1983). Color lithograph on paper titled "Le delire du couturier - bleu, rouge, vert (Fashion Frenzy - Blue, Red, Green)" depicting abstracted shapes in white against a three-toned gradient background, 1969. Pencil signed along the lower right; numbered 7/30 along the lower left.

Spanish artist Joan Miro was one of modern art's pioneers. His search for non-objectivity led him to Fauvism, Surrealism, and Cubism, as he refused to restrict his work to one style or medium. Miro geared all of his work toward breaking with the traditional, whether in his paintings, ceramic pieces, bronze sculptures, or prints. One hallmark of Miro's paintings is the mixing of precisely rendered imaginary objects along with commonplace objects. His prints were, like his paintings, experiments in breaking the conventions of art. While many of his works had a common theme, Miro refused to limit himself in his representation of images. Rather than creating art that totally abstracted reality, Miro pointed the way toward non-representational works. Many artists can trace their inspiration back to Joan Miro paintings.
