The Grand Palais in Paris is paying tribute to Catalan artist Joan Miró in a retrospective taking place 44 years since the French capital last had a major exhibition of the painter. Since October 3, the exhibition features 150 works by Miró, including paintings, sculptures and illustrated books from the Fundació Miró in Barcelona and Palma, the Pompidou and London’s Tate Modern, among other galleries. The show lets visitors explore Miró’s magical universe in chronological order.
“People who have achieved something have followed different paths, but none left the path. This has to be the most important objective in the life of any artist,” Miró wrote in 1920. It is this creative journey that the retrospective aims to plot.
