Joan Miró
Woman and Dog in Front of the Moon (Femme et chien devant la lune)
1935, published in 1936

“It was through contact with Surrealist poets and painters in Paris in the 1920s that Joan Miró evolved his visual language of signs. With curvilinear lines and biomorphic shapes, he sought to meld the realm of the unconscious to essential life forms, veering toward abstraction but always maintaining links to humanity, nature, and the cosmos.”
