The visit lasts more than an hour and calls in at the venue’s most emblematic spaces
Responsible for preserving some of the most representative works produced by Joan Miró during his career, with a collection that contains over 104,000 pieces that cover the breadth of the artist’s output, including paintings, sculptures and wall hangings, the Joan Miró Foundation also conserves practically all of Miró’s preparatory sketches: a total of 8,000 documents that offer an insight into the artist’s work. The foundation building, designed by the architect Josep Lluís Sert has been declared a heritage site by the Spanish government.
Anyone wishing to get to know the artist’s work better can do so through the free guided visits that are offered on the first Sunday of every month by the Foundation. The guided tour, which takes in the building’s most emblematic spaces, including the patios, halls, the terrace and the library), serve to introduce the public to a major example of 20th century Catalan architecture and to explore in particular aspects of the architecture of Sert. The visit is designed and led by El globus vermell.
