“Miró en son jardin”
Saint-Paul, The Marguerite and Aimé Maeght Foundation


Over 250 paintings and major sculptures, some of which have never before been shown to the public, illustrate the profound link between the Maeght family and Joan Miró, and furthermore Joan Miró’s intimate creative rapport with the gardens surrounding the Foundation.

Among other painters and sculptors considered in its original construction, Catalan architect Lluis Sert integrated Miró’s Labyrinthe, a garden of large sculptures and ceramics. Joan Miró, also of Catalan origin, found great inspiration in this open space, coming here to resource with both nature and his close ties with the Maeght family. As one of the major modern and surrealist artists working in the 20th century, Miró is revealed in this exhibition as having a more diverse creative répertoire, environmental inspiration and personal element to his work than is commonly known.
