Born near Barcelona in 1893, Joan Miró was admitted to the Academy of Fine Arts in Barcelona at the age of 14. Before 1920, his work shows wide-ranging influences, including the bright colors of the Fauves, the broken form of Cubism, and the powerful two-dimensionality of Catalan folk art. In 1920, he settled in Paris where he met Picasso and fell under the influence of the Surrealist poets and writers. Miró drew on memory and fantasy to create works of art that are visual metaphors of surrealist poetry. During his 90 years, Miró generated a colossal output: at least 2,000 oil paintings, 500 sculptures, 400 ceramic objects, and 5,000 drawings and collages.

This biographical documentary DVD from the Artists of the 20th Century Series is enhanced by images of the artist's greatest works.
