Nature and Fantasy

“The joy of learning to understand a tiny blade of grass in a landscape. Why disregard it? A blade of grass is as fascinating as a tree or a mountain.” Joan Miró

Contemplating and understanding nature was a source of inspiration for Joan Miró. The artist often sought refuge in "the absoluteness of nature." Its rhythms and materials shaped his art. In his work, he stated, "everything happens on its own, like the rhythm of nature," and using the materials it had to offer, "things found by chance, scraps of iron, stones (...)" were "that magic spark, what really matters in art" for Miró.
