Joan Miró was a painter, sculptor and ceramicist, that went to achieve global fame and critical acclaim for his works in surrealism. Born in Barcelona in 1893, he established a revolutionary pictorial language that changed art expressions during the 20th century. Along with Picasso and Dalí, he’s one of the most universal spanish artists.

The collection of the museum was assembled thanks to donations from the artist’s private collection. Other art collectors also contributed to complete the most comprehensive worldwide collection of one of the most universal catalan painters.

Miró himself, chose worldwide renowed architect and personal friend, Josep Lluís Sert, who had an impressive resumé as a Yale professor, with acclaimed buildings in Barcelona and Boston.

He designed the building taking into consideration important elements of Mediterranean architecture, such as all main spaces revolving around a central courtyard, and combined them with concepts of rationalist architecture.
