A highly personal world
This museum looks at the work of Joan Miró, a prolific and original artist.
Designed in 1975, the Joan Miró Foundation has a magnificent collection of works by the artist: some 11,000 pieces, including 240 paintings, 175 sculptures, 9 textile pieces, 4 ceramic works, nearly all his graphic works and some 8,000 drawings. But part of Miró’s legacy can also be seen around the city itself; an example is the spectacular sculpture "Woman and Bird" in the Escorxador Park, which is covered in fragments of tiles.
