Joan Miró Museum (Fundació Joan Miró)

The works of Joan Miró, one of Barcelona's most famous 20th century artists, are displayed in this building in the Parc de Montjuïc. The gallery itself is a piece of modern art, its design incorporating terraces and interior courtyards to direct the flow of visitors and give the space an open air feel.

Over 14,000 pieces of Miró's works are displayed here on a rotating basis, including everything from raw sketches to sculptures and coming from various periods in the artist's career. Most popular are the works made in his signature "childlike" style of bold shapes and bright colors. Never committing himself to a specific art movement, Miró dabbled in Surrealism and Expressionism as well as experimented with various types of media.

To further promote his belief that art should not be categorized or restricted, Miró dedicated his pieces to the Fundació to be displayed only under the condition that a space be reserved to exhibit the works of emerging artists. In keeping their word, the Fundació created Espai 13, which holds exhibits of upcoming contemporary artists.

Practical Info

Joan Miró's art can also be seen around the city in various public places. Keep an eye out for his sculptures standing in courtyards and plazas throughout Barcelona. And take a moment to notice the large ceramic mural at Terminal B of the Barcelona Airport, his collaborative piece with Josep Llorens Artigas.
