Joan Miro (1893-1983) was one of the most famous Catalan artists of the 20th century. He was a very prolific artist and he produced a very large amount of art. He went to live in Mallorca in 1956 and stayed until he died in 1983. The museum contains many of his works of art, with paintings, drawings and graphic works. These were donated by the artist and came from four workshops he had in Mallorca. The gardens exhibit many of his sculptures. The modern building where the Foundation is housed was designed by the Spanish architect Rafael Moneo, who was a winner of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1996.

 

Visitors can see the studios where Miro worked and one can see the tools that he used. Miro and his wife Pilar Juncosa donated the studios to the City of Palma de Mallorca.
