The Spanish artist Joan Miró was one of the leading exponents of Surrealism. His drawing The Kerosene Lampis an early attempt to create a personal Surrealist language. With characteristic wit, the artist combined a Cubist still life and a lamp with cartoonlike symbols. Many interpretations, mostly autobiographical, have been offered for Miró's quirky images, but the elements of his work are intended to be suggestive rather than specific in meaning.
