For the already famous Catalan artist Joan Miro, the 1960s have been marked by success in the East and his most active work in America. Japan and the United States had a tremendous impact on Miro’s creativity and a world-view. On the one hand, Miro has always been a man who looked for solitude and peace, harmony of body and spirit, possibility of full concentration on creativity – this can explain his attraction to the Eastern cultures. On the other hand, he wanted to go beyond his creative potential and to destroy his own ideas about art; despite the fact that he had already passed many stages, including the “killing of painting”, he continued moving forward – Miro was still looking for contemporary artistic language, new opportunities for self-expression – and America promised the master his next phase, a new cycle of development.
