Experience and deep knowledge of the artistic world has allowed the Bruno Art Group to be a major player in Contemporary Art, but not only. Having born more than a 100 years ago in Europe, Bruno Art Group has a deep connection with the artists who made the great art of the 19th and 20th Century: masters such as Marc Chagall and Joan Miro’.
Joan Miró was born in 1893, in Barcelona. He studied Fine Arts in Barcelona.
In 1920 Miró made his first trip to Paris, where he met Pablo Picasso. From this time, Miró divided his time between Paris and Montroig, Spain. In Paris he participated in Dada activities.
In 1921 he had his first solo show in Paris, at the Galerie la Licorne. His work was included in the Salon d’Automne of 1923. In 1924 Miró joined the Surrealist group.
In 1936 Miró was included in the exhibitions Cubism and Abstract Art and Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The following year he was commissioned to create a monumental work for the Paris World’s Fair.
Miró’s first major museum retrospective was held at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1941. He received the Grand Prize for Graphic Work at the Venice Biennale in 1954, and his work was included in the first Documenta exhibition in Kassel the following year. Miró retrospectives took place at the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, and the Grand Palais, Paris. Miró died in 1983, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Marc Chagall was born in 1887 in Vitebsk in Russia. He studied Arts at the Imperial Society of the Protection of the Arts in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
He moved to Paris and in 1912 he participated in the Salon des Indépendants and the Salon d’Automne.
His first retrospective took place in 1924 at the Galerie Barbazanges-Hodebert, Paris. In 1933 the Kunsthalle Basel held a major retrospective of his work.
During World War II Chagall fled to the United States. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, gave him a retrospective in 1946.
During the 1960s Chagall realized large-scale commissions at the synagogue of the Hadassah University Medical Center, Jerusalem; Paris Opéra; United Nations building, New York; Metropolitan Opera House, New York. He got major retrospectives at the Musée du Louvre, Paris, and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He died in 1985 in France.
Even if Marc Chagall was considered as part of the artistic movement the Ecole de Paris, he has never been linked to any artistic trends. Indeed, his inspiration mainly came from his imagination, the dream world or even biblical references.
