Library and archives

Bibliographic and documentary archives

The library is specialized in contemporary art, particularly in the figure, work and cultural context of Joan Miró. The library is open to the public and has a specific section in our web page. Currently, the collection is constituted by more than 22,000 documents, including monographs, exhibition catalogs, audiovisual or multimedia materials and national and international magazines. The collection grows constantly thanks to acquisitions through purchase, donations, own editions and exchange with other libraries.

Documentary archive

Joan Miró’s documentary archive includes correspondence, newspaper library, photographs, books from Miró’s personal library and heterogeneous material. The correspondence is made up of letters addressed to Miró by artists, architects, writers and friends, which represent about 800 documents. The archive includes over 11,000 documents, including the eight volumes of national and international press articles on Miró published between 1918 and 1958. The compilation of articles on Miró has continued until today. There are also 479 books from Miró’s personal library. In addition, Miró Mallorca Fundació houses around 20,000 photographs, annotations and a set of heterogeneous documents related to Miró.
