Joan Miró Collection

Collection activities


The collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures and works on paper displayed at the Fundació is one of the most comprehensive selections of Miró’s oeuvre, offering a thorough overview of all the stages of his life and career.

A variety of spaces allow visitors to venture into an interdisciplinary exploration of the highly personal language and production of one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. A series of overarching themes illustrate key concepts in Miró’s work and in the thinking of his times, while reflecting the artist’s desire to transcend conventional painting.

The paintings related to Surrealism and the works based on the Spanish Civil War are particularly noteworthy due to their artistic and poetic significance. Other important pieces include the large canvases Miró produced from the late seventies onwards, which are characterised by large fields of colour and free gesture.

The works currently comprising the Joan Miró Collection came from the donation made by the artist himself when the museum opened in 1975. Over the years, donations or long-term donations made by his wife Pilar Juncosa, his friend and cultural agitator Joan Prats and various members of the Miró family have been added to it, as have those from public and private collections.
