As a passionate reader and a good friend of poets, Joan Miró explored the paths of both painting and poetry simultaneously in his work, though eschewing any form of academicism, in a personal quest that did not ascribe to any particular movement. Throughout his life, poetry was a source of inspiration for him.
The Miró Poema exhibition offers a different perspective that aims to decipher the role of poetic writing in Miró’s artistic career, and analyzes the close relationship that the artist established with several poets of his time.
