Modern Spanish art is worth being amazed of! View gorgeous murals on a new stamp issue

October 5th, 2015

Spain is very diverse country with a large cultural heritage. It is also rich on artists from various fields and one of them is a mural art painting.

FindYourStampsValue.com recommends the collectors to appreciate new stamp issue by Spanish Post depicting one of the greatest works of Joan Miró - a Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramicist.

Joan Miró i Ferrà was born in Barcelona. A museum dedicated to his work, the Fundació Joan Miró, was established in his native city of Barcelona in 1975, and another, the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró, was established in his adoptive city of Palma de Mallorca in 1981.

Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride. In numerous interviews dating from the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and famously declared an "assassination of painting" in favour of upsetting the visual elements of established painting.
