Joan Miró. Different looks at the collection

3 June 2016 — 11 June 2017

The exhibition “Joan Miró. Different looks at the collection” presents to the public a selection of the pieces contained in the collections of the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró a Mallorca. These include 146 paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints and the variety of techniques, materials, and procedures employed bear witness to the artist's insatiable quest.

“This place is marvellous. You must visit it one day; it's very international but, at the same time, very isolated from the rest of the world"

Letter Joan Miró to Pierre Matisse, 17 de abril de 1954

For Joan Miró, Majorca was an extraordinary place for creating in peace and freedom, a place that offered just what the artist was looking for: silence.   Miró definitively settled on the island in 1956, specifically at Son Abrines where, for the first time, he had a magnificent studio designed by his great friend and collaborator Josep Lluís Sert. A few years later, around 1959, Miró bought some adjoining land and buildings, Son Boter, and set up a complex of workshops where the artist carried out and designed more than a third of all his artwork until his death in 1983 at the age of 90.

This is the period of a renowned Miró, of an internationally recognised painter and an artist working silently and incessantly in a wonderful setting. These were more than twenty-five years of fervent activity and an intense, aesthetic adventure where the spirit of struggle and the desire to experiment never left the artist.

This last period in his work also stands out for its wide range of creative fields, always desiring to “go that much further”, as Miró used to say, breaking all the traditional rules of artistic expression. Shock, contravention and openness formed a constant triad until his last days, enhancing his work with greater independence, freedom of expression and radicalism.
