Next month, La Fondation de l’Hermitage will present a new exhibition about Miro called “Poésie et Lumière”, Poetry and Light in french. It will take place from June 28th until October 27th 2013. More than 80 works by Joan Miró will be exhibited (1893 – 1983). All works come from Pilar i Joan Miro Foundation in Palma de Majorca.


The Miró foundation in Majorca holds a very important amount of the artist’s work and represents a very interesting place to visit.

About the incoming exhibition at L’Hermitage now. According to them: “The exhibition concentrates on the works of his maturity, created during the last thirty years of his life in the Majorcan workshop where the great master lived from 1956 until his death 1983.”

The exhibition will follow chronologically the work of the artist but also divide the collection by themes. It will be the final part of the artist work before his death, so at that period he is accomplished as an artist and as a man.

The 60’s and the 70’s were populated with strong and bright colours. Birds, women or even landscapes were important subjects for the artist.

Mosaic 1966
Poetry 1966
Woman in the street 1973

To complete the exhibition, a scenographic reconstitution of the artist’s studio in Palma will be presented as well as many objects, photos and biographical material.
