JOAN MIRÓ’S EMOTIONAL LANDSCAPES IN THE CAMP OF TARRAGONA
For a long time now we’ve been wanting to visit Mas Miró, a country house just outside the village of Montroig.
This rural property has been owned by the Miró family since the 1900s, when Joan was just a teenager.
It was in this very place that he decided to become a painter.
With time, this house and the surrounding outdoor spaces became the focal center of Miró’s growing artistic inspiration.
The artist said of himself “I work like a gardener”, an expression that can also be interpreted as a crucial declaration of intent.
Every summer he felt the need to tread the red earth of Montroig and renew his creativity by getting back in touch with nature.
Long walks brought about new ideas, and new ideas meant many hours of artistic research.
Such an important creative space has been open to the public since 2018, for all those who to want to learn more about the life and work of Miró.
