Catalogue Note

"I've been interested in sculpture since I was nineteen years old... my taste for sculpture picked up at that time, and it was stimulated when I made ceramics with Artigas. Making sculpture is a passionate experience for me, and I'm dedicating myself to it more and more." Joan Miró; translated from the French
