1921 — The Farm. Oil on Canvas. Cubism and Primitivism styles. Joan Miró (1893-1983). National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, USA.

[The Farm] is a kind of inventory of the farmhouse owned by his family since 1911 in the town of Mont-roig del Camp. Miró himself regarded this work as a key in his career, describing it as “a summary of my entire life in the countryside” and “the summary of one period of my work, but also the point of departure for what was to follow.” (Wikipedia)
