Celebrated as one of the greatest modern artists, Joan Miró (1893–1983) developed a visual language that reflected his vision and energy in a variety of styles across many media. Through some 120 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from a career spanning almost a century, the exhibition reveals a politically engaged side to Miró’s work, including his passionate response to one of the most turbulent periods in European history as well as his sense of Spanish—specifically Catalonian—identity.
Organized by Tate Modern, London, in collaboration with Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, and in association with the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation. Additional support is provided by Buffy and William Cafritz. The Institut Ramon Llull is an exhibition sponsor in Washington and London.
