Fondation Maeght : Miro beyond painting
Joan Miró. Beyond painting.
29 June - 17 November 2019
Guest Curator: Rosa Maria Malet, Historical Director of the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona.
From 29 June to 17 November 2019, the Fondation Maeght is celebrating Joan Miró, a major player in the foundation's creation alongside Marguerite and Aimé Maeght and their architect friend Josep Lluís Sert. The exhibition "Joan Miró. Beyond painting." curated by Rosa Maria Malet, former director of the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, gives visitors the opportunity to discover an essential aspect of the artist: his exceptional graphic work. The exhibition is centred on the working process of Miró, an artist who produced one of the most remarkable bodies of printed work in the history of art. Made possible largely from an exceptional donation by Adrien Maeght, who worked with Miró in his studio at the ARTE print shop, the show presents over 200 works, including a number of unseen gouaches. Artist's proofs, posters, prints, original lithographs, printing plates, final proofs and rare books complete the exhibition and shed light on this prodigious creative work.
