Miró was a Spanish painter that combined abstract art with Surrealist fantasy to create his lithographs, murals, tapestries, and sculptures. His mature style evolved from the tension between his fanciful, poetic impulse and his vision of the harshness of modern life.
In spite of his fame, Miró, an introvert, continued to devote himself exclusively to looking and creating.
With this painting Miro depictes three typically imaginative, interlocking figures that together create a powerful image of aggression and fear. Know for his surrealism, Joan Miró used fancy and colorful images that express the subconscious. On the back of this canvas is the dedication pour Jacky, Peter, et Pauley Matisse".
