A wide selection of works realized between 1931 and 1981 from the great Catalan artist

The oeuvre of Joan Miró, one of the most celebrated figures in the history of modern art, is closely linked to Surrealism and reveals the considerable influence that artists and poets belonging to the movement had on his work in the 1920s and 1930s. Indeed, they aroused in Miró the need to meld painting and poetry. Thus his art moved towards a simplification of reality, reminiscent of primitive art, on the basis of which he constructed an innovative language of symbols that would give him a new perception of material culture.
‘Joan Miró. La forza della materia’ (Joan Miró: The Force of Matter) focuses on this last aspect, showing through a wide selection of works executed between 1931 and 1981, the importance the artist always gave to the material, not only as a useful means of learning new techniques, but especially as an end in itself. Miró experimented with unconventional media and innovative procedures, breaking the rules so as to arrive at the very origins of art.

Over 100 works are displayed chronologically to reconstruct the artist’s trajectory. The majority are from the Fundació Joan Miró collection in Barcelona and from that of the artist’s family.
