Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Spain
Miró: Earth



Miró: Earth
SPAIN
MADRID  •  Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum  •  Ongoing
 
The present exhibition offers a survey of Joan Miró’s career from 1918, the date of his first solo exhibition, to his last works. Its guiding thread is the idea of “Earth”. For Miró, “Earth” meant his native region of Catalunya, but the word also functioned for the artist as a key to certain ideas and values characteristic of rural culture such as fertility, sexuality, fable and excess and is related to the quest for the forerunner of Informalism and Abstract Expressionism, trends that prevailed in mid-20th-century art.
