- About the work
"The Toys" belongs to a series of paintings by the Catalonian artist Joan Miró, where the subjects are drawn on the canvas, with a sparse addition of colour accents. The rocking horse - with its precarious perspective - expresses both playfulness and sternness. Together with the conical "tree", the "dice" and the "balls", it forms a poetic still-life. Joan Miró was a close friend of Picasso. After a short period as a cubist, he developed a new style in the early-1920s as a conscious, radical effort. He was eager to experiment and make new discoveries
