Joan Miró liked to recall how he had become interested in sculpture at nineteen with Professor Francesc Galí: "It was there where I also learned to draw without seeing, only by touch. Our hands back and palpábamos an object that after we had to play without having seen" (M. Rowell Joan Miró. Writings and conversations, 2002).
