The exhibition Joan Miró. Beyond painting. curated by Rosa Maria Malet, former director of the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, gives visitors the opportunity to discover an essential aspect of the artist: his exceptional graphic work. The exhibition is centered on the working process of Miró, an artist who produced one of the most remarkable bodies of printed work in the history of art. Made possible largely from an exceptional donation by Adrien Maeght, who worked with Miró in his studio at the ARTE print shop, the show presents over 200 works, including a number of unseen gouaches. Artist’s proofs, posters, prints, original lithographs, printing plates, final proofs and rare books complete the exhibition and shed light on this prodigious creative work.
The preparatory work presented by the Fondation Maeght reveals Joan Miró’s goal of using all the possibilities open to him. The exhibition pays tribute to a highly driven artist while explaining his working methods. The exhibition reveals the evolution, scale and richness of Joan Miró’s graphic work through a layout focusing on four main concepts: Joan Miró’s relationships with poets, the concept of collage, combinatory possibilities and the discovery of techniques.
