Enter the world of renowned Catalan artist Joan Miró at The Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona.
With a unique vision, and his use of bold colours and broad organic forms, Miró is one of the most influential figures in the art world. He's known for his works in painting, sculpture, mural, and ceramics. Ernest Hemingway compared Miró's painting The Farm (which he acquired), to James Joyce's Ulysses. Though he himself was not a writer, Miró did try to explain how he worked with colour to communicate his ideas, "I try to apply colours like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music."
In 1968, Joan Miró himself had the idea to create the foundation. His goal was to establish an internationally recognized center in Barcelona for younger artists to engage with contemporary art. True to his original vision, the Foundation has a space ("Espai 13"), dedicated to the work of young experimental artists - as well as a large collection of works by Miró himself. Today, the Fundacio Miró Museum displays almost 15,000 pieces of art. You can find more than 8.000 drawings, 217 paintings, 178 sculptures as well as ceramics, textiles and graphic works.
The Fundació also organizes temporary exhibitions of 20th and 21st-century artists. Besides the exhibitions, the foundation also presents academic activities and projects in collaboration with other institutions and organizations.
