The Fundació Joan Miró of Barcelona occupies a unique building designed by Josep Lluís Sert. Opened in 1975, it houses the most important public collection of the work of Joan Miró. Its spaces conserve a selection of 300 paintings, 150 sculptures, 9 textile pieces, practically all of his prints and over 8.000 drawings, ranging from the very earliest manifestations of Miró’s plastic sensitivity to the final period. The majority of this collection was donated by Joan Miró, himself to the Fundació. Other works stem from the collection of Joan Prats and that of Pilar Juncosa, Miró’s wife, as well as from other later donations. The Fundació Joan Miró also houses temporary exhibitions of contemporary art.
