So from 1923-1924, Miró’s output began to evolve towards Surrealism, and this would have a definitive effect on his future production. Pintura (Hombre con pipa) (Painting [Man with a Pipe]) exemplifies the creative freedom offered by the movement, which led the artist to experiment with a new language, taking as his starting point that most authentic of Surrealist procedures, Automatism. The character that gives the painting its title, portrayed very ironically, becomes part of the invented space, which almost strays into abstraction. The grace with which the points have been drawn and the relaxed, free drawing style, are the painting’s signs of identity.
