One of the twentieth century’s most celebrated artists, Joan Miró’s magical universe is explored in this intimate exhibition spanning 50 years of creative production in a journey that begins with a painting from 1931 and ends with a work on paper from 1981, enabling us to chart how his work evolved over the decades.

Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 – Palma de Mallorca, 1983) is one of the twentieth century’s most celebrated artists, whose influence and legacy continues to be ever-present in our times today. Painter, sculptor and ceramicist, his lifelong playful flirtation with abstraction and figuration have secured his place in the pantheon of art history.

Avoiding categorisation, neither cubist, surrealist nor abstract artist, this exhibition aims to take a journey through more than 50 years of the artist’s creative production. The tour begins in 1931, with a small figurative painting in which one can identify the beginning of that unique visual language characteristic of Miró. It ends in 1981 with a oil on paper that presents his popular style. Spanning a combined total of 32 works, the exhibition features iconic pieces, including Souvenir de la Tour Eiffel (1977), Gymnaste (1977) or Le Pélerin (1972).

The exhibition features his paintings, sculptures and drawings, presenting the progression of his style as he honed in on his artistic voice. This survey show is an intimate walk-through Miró’s colourful career.

MARUANI MERCIER Gallery is honoured to bring this important exhibition curated by Dr. Javier Molins in close conversation with the Miró family and Galerie Lelong Paris. Molins has a doctorate in fine arts and has organised exhibitions internationally to showcase works by such artists as Pablo Picasso, Sean Scully or Julian Opie.
