Fundació Joan Miró

This superb tribute to a man whose legacy as an artist and as a Catalan is visible city-wide was founded in 1975 by Joan Miró himself, who wanted it to be a contemporary arts centre. The museum holds more than 11,000 examples of the artist’s colourful paintings, sketches and sculptures. The 400 or so on display trace Miró’s development from an innovative Surrealist phase in the 1920s to his place as one of the world’s most challenging masters in the 1960s.
