Description


This tour is specially for those interested in learning about Joan Miró Foundation. Opened to the public on 10 June 1975, at a time when artistic and cultural life was certainly minimal, the Foundation brought a refreshing vitality, together with a new, more dynamic concept of an Art Museum in which Miró´s art was shown alongside a wide variety of creative works by other artists, a fact that is reflected in the Foundation´s full name: Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art.

The location is perfect as it is atop Montjuic Hill juts up 170m which offers magnificent views over Barcelona and its port. The hill was urbanized for the second International Exhibition and is both a cultural attraction, including The Joan Miró Foundation, and a sports one with the Olympic Ring and Stadium.

The Guided Tour takes you through the life of Miró, a born and bred Catalan. Miró studied painting, with a characteristic signature influenced by the bright colors of Fauvism and broken forms of Cubism. He was a prolific artist and left a great number of works: paintings, drawings, collage, ceramics, and sculptures but also a Foundation to encourage contemporary art and a beautiful, modern, naturally lit gallery to show it, the Fundació Joan Miró on Montjuïc. Built by his friend, the Catalan architect Josep Lluis Sert, it is the perfect setting for a magnificent collection.
