"Celebrated as one of the greatest modern artists, Joan Miró (1893–1983) developed a visual language that reflected his vision and energy in a variety of styles across many media. Through some 120 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from a career spanning almost a century, the exhibition reveals a politically engaged side to Miró's work, including his passionate response to one of the most turbulent periods in European history as well as his sense of Spanish—specifically Catalonian—identity."
Exhibition Film: Narrated by Ed Harris and produced by the Gallery, this film examines the impact of the Spanish Civil War, the fascism of the Franco regime, and the events of World War II on Miró's career.
