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.
"From November and until February the Mas Miró Foundation will be closed for works of the second part of the rehabilitation. For this reason, access to visitors will be temporary closed until the final works. We think the reopening will be on february but we will inform as soon as possible in our web site". Thank you and we hope to see you soon in Mas Miró"." Gràcies.
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.
