Joan Miro Foundation, Barcelona Reviews
This is a small Miró collection but the temporary exhibits are worth the trip, and the temporary Japanese woodblock exhibit of Itō Shinsui was quite impressive. The exhibit featured many portraits but also a few landscape prints. A video display played a clip from the Tokyo Traditional Woodblock Print Association. Before leaving, be sure to hike up to the roof to see spectacular views of Barcelona.
The building in space for the Joan Miro collection is very interesting. Miro apparently designed to the space himself and donated many works of art to it. Other family and friends and collectors of Miro have donated or lent art to this Foundation. I personally prefer the early Miro and do not care as much for his later work. But I still enjoyed wandering in these rooms and seeing the physical layout of the space he created. If you were more interested in Modern Art and minimalism this is a great place to see his work.
An amazing setting for interesting art by Joan Miró. I’m still flabbergasted by the Calder mercury fountain. Look for the dots that diffuse and the temp exhibits. The sculptures on the roof are fascinating
The architecture of the museum is what I liked the most! Otherwise it's a little pricey (12€ for the whole thing) but you do get to see a lot of Miro's work! I did enjoy the visit, wasn't wowed by the temporary exhibitions though.
Love the collection, been here the second time. Recommend that you take the time to walk around the space and enjoy the sculptures. I got a scarve with a pattern of one of Miro's panting, not cheap but it's design based on a real piece of art instead of some expensive brand name :-)
