NEW YORK (CBS 2) – Everyday classic Dutch life becomes abstract on a Spanish painter’s canvas.

For Joan Miro, his work took inspiration from the Dutch masters after a visit in 1928 to the Rikksmuseum in Amsterdam.

After his visit, Miro decided to transform the works of Jan Stain and Hendrick Sorgh in a surrealist leap.

CBS 2’s Dana Tyler has more at the MET in an exhibition called “Miro: The Dutch Interiors.”
