Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation

This exciting visit into Miró's intimacy will allow you to better know this true artist who was all at once a great painter, sculptor, engraver, and ceramist.

Joan Miró waited 63 years for his dream to materialize: to be able to create in a large workshop. In 1954, his architect friend Josep Lluís Sert designed an open space where Palma de Mallorca's light would generously flow. When the artist settled there in 1956, he was coming back to his roots: his mother was from Mallorca and his wife Pilar, a native of the island. Created by Joan Miró and his wife two years before the artist's death in 1983, the foundation nestles in the heart of this incredible building. More than 6,000 works are presented to the public - paintings, sculptures, drawings - as well as part of Miró's vast correspondence, a collection of 5,000 newspapers or magazines, photographs and books from his personal library. Walk inside and around the building: water, concrete and light juxtapose with Miró's intense canvases painted in primary colours. The artist's studio remained practically untouched, with unfinished canvases still on their easels and open paint jars. The garden, quiet and charming, displays several sculptures and a café, where you can sit and let your thoughts run free.
