A wonderful retrospective of the painter Miró at Grand Palais
From October 3rd, 2018, to February 4th, 2019, at Grand Palais, which was built in 1897 and planned for the Exposition Universelle of 1900, more than 150 works by Joan Miró are exhibited, with some of them have never been presented before in France. In addition to the style, colors and singular dreamlike world of Joan Miró’s paintings, the exhibition retraces 70 years of his creations, his evolution and his artistic journey. Miró was not always wrapped up in this poetic “childlike” world. His first works were marked by the Fauvist, Cubist and Expressionist movements. His first major exhibitions were held in Barcelona. Then in the 1920s, came his move to Paris, the capital of the art world, and several decisive meetings (Antonin Artaud, Max Jacob, etc.).
If you want to know the work of artist Joan Miró better, a program was put together for this exhibition with conferences on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and documentaries on Fridays at noon, which can be consulted on the Grand Palais website.
