In his work he reflected his interest in the subconscious, in the "childish" and in his country. At first he showed strong Fauve, Cubist and Expressionist influences, moving to a flat painting with a certain naive air, such as his well-known painting La Masía from 1920. From his stay in Paris, his work became more dreamlike, coinciding with the points of surrealism and joining this movement.1 In numerous interviews and writings dating from the 1930s, Miró expressed his desire to abandon conventional methods of painting, in his own words of "killing, assassinating or raping them", to be able to favor a form of expression that was contemporary, and not want to bow to its demands and aesthetics or even to its commitments towards the surrealists.2 One of his major projects was the creation in 1975 of the Joan Miró Foundation, located in Barcelona, a cultural and artistic center to spread the new trends in contemporary art, establishing itself with a large collection of works donated by the author; Other places with important collections of his works are the Pilar i Joan Miró Foundation in Palma de Mallorca, the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, the Pompidou Center in Paris (Musée National d'Art Moderne) and the MOMA in New York.
