10 Oct Joan Miro’s Barcelona
Barcelona is worldwide known for its art, and its most famous artist is Antoni Gaudí. Everybody associates Barcelona with Gaudí, but there are many other great artists sometimes eclipsed with Gaudi’s shadow, like Joan Miró. Barcelona offers an interesting route around Miro’s works, of which I will give you a little preview.
The Museum ‘Fundació Joan Miró’ contains the biggest and most important public collection of Miro’s work with more than 217 paintings and 179 sculptures among the more than 14.000 pieces in exposition. It is located in Montjuic, from which is also possible to have a great view of the city from the heights.
Miró’s work is not only confined to museums, he also used his hometown as a Canvas. In the ‘Joan Miró Park’ it is possible to see one of his most famous sculptures, ‘Dona I Ocell’ (Woman and Bird), with more than 22 meters height and bright colors it is for sure his most famous sculptures in Barcelona.
