Exhibition at the McNay Art Museum presents more than 50 works created by Joan Miró
Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist’s life, Mirό: The Experience of Seeing brings an extensive and illuminating body of Miró’s work to South Texas for the first time.

SAN ANTONIO, TX.- The McNay Art Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Mirό (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe, during Miró: The Experience of Seeing. The exhibition opened September 30, 2015 and runs through Jan. 10, 2016. The McNay is the only southwest venue and final stop of the exhibition’s U.S. tour.

Featuring more than 50 remarkable paintings, drawings, and sculptures created by Joan Miró between 1963 and 1981, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is drawn entirely from the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Spain. The exhibition features bold, colorful, and often playful compositions that highlight the artist’s ingenuity and offers a fresh assessment of the late period of Miró’s work—something that audiences in the United States have not yet had the opportunity to explore in depth.

“There are always references to nature, to humans, to animals in his work, but it becomes even more playful in his late career, and many of his sculptures are like little people looking at you, “ said Dr. William Chiego, Director of the McNay Art Museum. “They have a wonderful appeal for adults and children both and it just shows a lyrical side of his personality as an artist that really projects to the end of his life.”

A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Mirό was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career.

Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist’s life, Mirό: The Experience of Seeing brings an extensive and illuminating body of Miró’s work to South Texas for the first time.

Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.
