Joan Miró is given pride of place! From October 3, 2018 to February 4, 2019, the Grand Palais offers an exhibition about the Catalan artist’s work. A retrospective focusing on the artist’s pivotal periods, by displaying over 150 works coming from the greatest European and American museums, as well as from private collections.
A sophisticated staging for the Grand Palais areas promoting the painter’s main works and reminding Miró’s Mediterranean universe. Paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculptures… As many materials offering to discover or rediscover the artist and his particular work around “this journey marked by constant renewals”.
The exhibition starts with the Fauvism, Cubism and detail periods before continuing with the surrealist era “where Miró invents a poetic world, unknown in the painting of the 20th century”. The idea behind this tour? Highlighting “the artist’s questioning, his researches as well as his color range always at the service of a vocabulary of unused and new shapes”. The last rooms focus on the artist’s last 25 years, at the time Miró lived in Majorca and created bigger works giving “a breadth to an always meticulously precise movement”.
