Miró invariably spent every summer through to 1976 at the farm that his parents had bought in 1911. His deep-rooted sense of attachment to the landscape of Mont-roig and later to that of Mallorca, his final home as from the 1950s, would play a decisive role in his work and in his artistic language. Barcelona, Mont-roig, Mallorca and also Paris (in the 1920s), New York (in the 1940s) and Japan (in the 1960s) were all his emotional landscapes–although Mont-roig would always act as a counterpoint, the source of that initial impact which he revisited time and time again.

Miró and Mont-roig
"All my work is conceived in Mont-roig."
The origins of Joan Miró’s work and his artistic universe can be traced back to Mont-roig and, in particular, to Mas Miró and its surrounding landscape. It was here, in 1911 after a depression, that he decided to devote himself fully to painting.
The land, the farmworkers’ labours, nature and the landscape are recurrent themes in all his early paintings.
