The Joan Miró Foundation Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Joan Miró Foundation

The Joan Miró Foundation displays some 300 paintings, 150 sculptures, and more than 7,000 drawings by the Surrealist artist in a building located at the bottom of Montjuïc hill. It is the world's biggest collection and only a small portion of it is shown to the public. In addition to the major works, you will discover some unusual works like the 'Miró papers', composed of drawings and sketches made, for some, on scraps of paper or cigarette packets.
