Miro visited the Netherlands in 1928 and began a series of paintings inspired by Dutch masters. That year he executed his first papiers collé s and collages. In 1929 he started his experiments in lithography, and his first etchings date from 1933. During the early 1930s he made Surrealist sculptures incorporating painted stones and found objects. Also in 1936 Miró was included in the exhibitions Cubism and Abstract Art and Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The following year he was commissioned to create a monumental work for the Paris World’ s Fair.
In 1941, he began working in ceramics with Josep Lloré ns y Artigas and started to concentrate on prints; from 1954 to 1958 he worked almost exclusively in these two mediums. In 1959, he resumed painting, initiating a series of mural-sized canvases. During the 1960s he began to work intensively in sculpture. On the other hand, as an artist, Salvador Dali was not limited to a particular style or media. The body of his work, from early impressionist paintings through his transitional surrealist works, and into his classical period, reveals a constantly growing and evolving artist.
Dali worked in all media, leaving behind a wealth of oils, watercolors, drawings, graphics, and sculptures, films, photographs, performance pieces, jewels and objects of all descriptions. As important, he left for posterity the permission to explore all aspects of one’ s own life and to give them artistic expression. Whether working from pure inspiration or on a commissioned illustration, Dali's matchless insight and symbolic complexity are apparent. Above all, Dali was a superb draftsman. 4. Miró received early encouragement from the dealer José Dalmau, who gave him his first solo show at his gallery in Barcelona in 1918.
In 1917 he met Francis Picabia. In 1920 Miró made his first trip to Paris, where he met Pablo Picasso. In Paris he associated with the poets Max Jacob, Pierre Reverdy, and Tristan Tzara and participated in Dada [more] activities. Dalmau organized Miró ’ s first solo show in Paris, at the Galerie la Licorne in 1921.
