We are delighted to welcome back popular lecturer John Perrin to discuss the Spanish painter Joan Miró (1893-1983). Miró was to become a prominent member of the Surrealist movement, mostly remembered for his distinctive portrayal of weird hallucinatory beings which seem to spring from a subconscious dream world. Miró was in Portugal with Delaunay during World War I before settling in Paris where he was influenced by Picasso. His inventive calligraphy earned him the description ‘the most Surrealist of us all”. Returning to Barcelona in the 1940s he remained an important figure who undertook many public commissions.

John Perrin is a very experienced lecturer who runs regular WEA courses throughout Sussex on the Appreciation of Modern Art.
