about "Miró and the Object"
In one of his notebooks from the 1940s, Joan Miró jots down some of the projects he would like to pursue: "...create an album with beautiful photographs of objects that I have found and embellish it with a pochoir or a coloured lithograph, with a poetic text or poem, or even a poem of my own...". In a sense, The Miró Eye, with text by Joan Punyet Miró and photographs by Jean-Marie del Moral, may be seen as the fulfilment of this wish expressed by Miró.

Barcelona was a source of inspiration for Miró and, in turn, he left his mark on the city. This itinerary provides a well-documented tour of the public works he bequeathed to Barcelona and of some of the locations in the city that played a key role in his development as an artist and as a person.
The itinerary can be followed step by step with the help of a map available at the Fundació Joan Miró, or simply download the "Joan Miró" application.
