Delicate linear forms float on the open blue that Miró associated
with dreams. With Andre Masson, Miro was the first to create
imagery using automatic techniques in which forms seemed to emerge
directly from the unconscious. From this he developed his own
personal sign language, which simplified familiar things such as
stars, birds and parts of the body.
