Joan Miro 1917–1935: I'm going to smash their guitar
This study of the crucial formative period of Miró's art – from 1917 to 1934, from his first emergence in the avant-garde of Barcelona and Paris to his acclaim by the Surrealists as a modern master – concentrates on the sometimes painful, sometimes ecstatic processes of his early development, working either in Paris or in the seclusion of his farm at Montroig in Catalonia.
