once said: "I think that mastering freedom means mastering simplicity." Then one line, one color is enough to create the whole picture.” The painting The Singing Fish is an easily and immediately recognizable painting by the artist Miró. It combines highly abstract shapes in such a way as to depict the painter's imagination. The main, eye-catching point of the image is the head of the fish, which consists of a black and green area and two abstract circles representing the eye. The painting has the use of bright colors and expressive energy, but also an almost childlike simplicity and playfulness. Joan Miró
sought the basic shapes for his "pictorial dictionary" in primitive sources, especially in the prehistoric cave paintings of his native Spain. He used signs and symbols composed of basic linear raw materials.

Spanish (Catalonian) painter and sculptor. His paintings are considered surrealist
. His approach attacks the traditional methodology (from the 1930s), which Miró considered bourgeois. He began making a living as an accountant, but quickly left behind the world of numbers and fully devoted himself to art. Gradually, he developed his symbolic language that he first used in the paintings The Tilled Field
(1924) and Catalonia Landscape
(1923). This language is used in most of his works. For example, he used the triangle shape to show the head, curves to show a moustache, and a rectangular shape to depict the trunk. As a surrealist, he often painted without a plan, with references to sexual symbols (for example, egg-like forms with penetrating wavy lines). As one of the first artists, he used auto painting. André Breton - the founder of surrealism
- eventually described him as the purest surrealist of us all and he is considered an influential painter of the 20th century, who influenced mainly American expressionists
(from the better known, for example Rothko Pollock
or Motherwell and Calder).
