One of these four critical pieces is La casa de la palmera (House with Palm Tree), in which Miró’s treatment of the landscape is so painstakingly realistic and descriptive that it has actually been described as a “register of objects”. This type of work, which the artist would continue to develop up until 1922, has a somewhat oneiric, naïve feel, mainly due to the absence of evidence of plein air painting and to the above-mentioned descriptive detail in the landscape features. The painting of La casa de la palmera constitutes the first major creative milestone for the Catalan painter, who would begin to do works that were more clearly approaching Surrealism from 1923-1924 onward.
