Fundació Joan Miró Art Museum

The history of the Fundació Joan Miró art museum started in 1975, during Joan Miró's lifetime (1893-1983). The Fundació Joan Miró is a foundation that operates this art museum, which is located on the Montjuïc. Over its history, the museum needed to be expanded twice so that the museum could have enough room to display Miró’s artwork. 

A large part of Miró’s work was gifted to the foundation. Joan Miró’s wish from the start was that other contemporary artists should have a place in the Fundació Joan Miró art museum exhibitions. For this reason, exhibitions of artwork by artists from the 20th century are rotated in the museum. 

The building that the Fundació Joan Miró art museum is housed by was created by the architect, Lluís Sert. Because he was friends with Joan Miró and was familiar with his artwork, he made a strong emphasis in his design of the building to allow ample amount of natural light to illuminate the museum.

A highlight in the Fundació Joan Miró art museum is the donated (by Alexander Calder) fountain, “font del mercuri,” which was created for the World Exhibition in 1973 in Paris. What’s special about this fountain is that mercury flows through instead of water. Because of this special feature, the fountain is protected behind a thick, glass wall.

Currently, the collection by the Fundació Joan Miró foundation boasts to have about 8,300 art objects, which includes almost all of Joan Miró’s graphical artwork, as well as 300 paintings, sculptures, textile art pieces, and ceramic pieces from other artists. Not all of these 8,000 objects will be showcased together, but rather in thematically organized areas. In this way, you can learn about Joan Miró and about his contemporaries.
