Oh what a location for his studio for the 25+ years he lived in Majorca. His wife Pilar was from the island. High above the bay, with the sun twinkling on the sea. An idyllic setting for his studio designed by Sert. An interesting building in itself still left as it was in his day. You almost expect him to... 更多
This is a superb museum, the Moneo Building beautifully designed on land adjacent to Miro's studios and reflecting Miro's own work in its plan. The museum is fairly large and designed so that visitors are not much aware of other visitors. There is a great museum shop, with interesting stock.
It's good to see the old house and the modern atelier of Joan Miro, but allowing you to only visit half of those places, gives a bad feeling. Moreover, I think Miro has much better art work than the ones on display in the museum. That's a pity for a place that calls itself the foundation of Joan Miro.

A bit disappointed there was no major work on display. Nice grounds, outhouses are still being used as he used them and facilities for art students.

Superior in every way. And very beautiful. It rivals the Fondation Maeght in St Paul de Vence. The setting and views to the ocean... 更多

Outside the gallery are two small studios - nice short stroll with good views over Cala Major. Pleasant couple of hours spent and worth visiting if in the... 更多
We had a lovely morning visit to the Foundation. We both like Miro and it was good to see his studios and try to understand how he worked. His inspiration and the development of his sculpture was very evident. His paintings were, as always, interesting and the tapestries inspired by work were fascinating. However, if you are a big fan... 更多
