It’s been over 60 years since Joan Miró decided to make his home in Mallorca to allow his creativity free reign and continue with his prolific work, still difficult to catalogue due to its singularity. The renowned painter, sculptor, and ceramicist from Barcelona was a pioneer in surrealist art and left us a fascinating legacy that you can visit at the Fundació Miró Mallorca.
Time seems to have come to a halt in this cultural centre, a unique place in the world. Unfinished paintings, Paint pots and brushes left open on easels, the painter’s clothing, sketches on the walls, stains on the floor.… everything remains intact in the creative workshops; a living snapshot of the 30 years that Miró spent in Mallorca. Here at the Fundació Miró Mallorca, which houses some 7,000 works of art, he found the peace and freedom that he was searching for, and that would inspire his unconventional works, where primary colours were always the outstanding feature.
We at Nivia Born Boutique Hotel would like to propose a journey through his career, creative process, his stories and anecdotes with a private guided tour of the various spaces at the Fundació Miró Mallorca, which constitute an architectural ensemble of extraordinary beauty.
Accompanied by staff from the Fundació, you can visit the art studios belonging to this Catalan genius, admire the collections, and learn about some interesting details that have not transcended to the wider public. The delightful ambience, the light-filled spaces, and the presence of nature will immerse you in the Works and life of the great artist. Your visit to the Sert and Son Boter workshops, which have been declared Assets of Cultural Interest (BIC), will bring you closer to the dream of this great master of abstract art with limitless imagination, it’s a very special privilege.
After your visit to the Fundació Miró Mallorca, the artistic-cultural tour will continue with visits to four contemporary galleries in Palma that will surprise you with the fascinating works on display: Pelaires, Kaplan, Gallery Red and Aba Art Lab.
