MIRÓ AND THE SURREALIST MOVEMENT
“When I work, when I am awake, I dream.”
Joan Miró
From 1932 onwards, Miró expresses himself through a surrealist language in an attempt to become a kind of automatic machine which registered his vital impulses and his moods.

In 1929 Dalí travels to Paris, where Miró introduced him to the Surrealist group.
Dalí’s Surrealism is based upon the deliberate and conscious use of images and symbols related to the world of dreams, which he defines perfectly and reproduces thoroughly on the canvas. Miró, on the contrary, prefers the automatism of calligraphic and other kinds of signs, the representation of cosmic and symbolist worlds, and the breaking-up with the art establishment.
