Joan Miró had a dream, and he fulfilled it in his house in Mallorca: he was able to design two work studios and power his creative growth, which was particularly intense during the final stage of his life, without limits. Miró was at his most experimental, most unconventional. He used (and alternated between) all kinds of spaces, and worked on them with different parts of his own body. Luckily the two studios are well preserved, just as they were at the time of the great artist’s death. Visiting these two studios, Taller Sert and Son Boter, both declared Bien de Interés Cultural (site of cultural interest), gives you a privileged view of the master’s work and creative process, perhaps illustrated best by his paintings, paint brushes, the smears on the floor and sketches of future works in charcoal on the walls.
And then there is the Moneo building, which is worth a visit alone. Designed by the architectural genius Rafael Moneo, it offers as much space as possible to exhibit Miró’s permanent collection. The design of the building, integrated into its natural environment, allows the rooms to be bathed with warm light filtered through translucent alabaster panels spread out on some of the walls. Many wonderful experiences are guaranteed on a visit to this unique, impressive space.
