Joan Miró “Self Portrait”

joan-miro-self-portrait-1937-1960

This is a self-portrait of the Catalan artist Joan Miro. Miro worked on this piece from 1937-1960. This self portrait was painted in oil/pencil. This imaginative piece demonstrates that Miro thought of himself as an ever changing and evolving person that had a very humble opinion of himself.
