Fundació Joan Miró

In a Mediterranean-styled building located in Montjuïc, the foundation has the most important public collection of this painter, sculptor, engraver and surrealist ceramist.

The Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona is a museum dedicated to the work of the Catalan artist Joan Miró, one of the most important Spanish artists of the 20th century. The museum, which opened in 1975, is located on Montjuïc mountain and is one of the city's most popular tourist attractions.

The Fundació Joan Miró has an extensive collection of the artist's works, including paintings, sculptures, ceramics and works on paper. Many of these works are of great historical and artistic importance, and show the evolution of Miró's style and technique throughout his career.

One of the Fundació's most emblematic works is the exterior mural, a gigantic ceramic piece that covers the façade of the building. The mural, created by Miró and the architect Josep Lluís Sert, is an explosion of colour and form that symbolises the artist's creativity and vitality. Another highlight of the permanent collection is the series of paintings called "Constellations", created in the 1940s. These works are known for their use of abstract symbols and signs representing the cosmos and nature.

In addition to Miró's works, the Fundació Joan Miró also has a wide variety of temporary exhibitions showing works by local and international artists. These exhibitions can be very varied, ranging from photography to contemporary art, and are often an opportunity to see works that are not in the museum's permanent collection.

The Fundació Joan Miró also offers a wide variety of activities and events for the public, such as guided tours, art workshops and lectures. These activities are designed to bring Miró's work to the public and encourage creativity and artistic exploration.

In addition to the museum itself, the Fundació Joan Miró also has a beautiful sculpture garden that extends throughout the property. The garden is home to a variety of outdoor works of art, many of which were created by Miró, and is a perfect place to relax and enjoy art and nature. The museum is a must for any art lover visiting Barcelona.
