PARIS.- The Maillol Museum is paying homage to Joan Miró’s sculpted work. Although the artist is internationally acknowledged, his sculptures have not been exhibited in Paris in nearly 40 years.

To mark the occasion the museum has gathered up 101 sculptures, 22 ceramics, 19 works on paper and one painting. The works on display mostly come from the outstanding collection of the Fondation Marguerite et Aimé Maeght.

His first ceramics, carried out with Josep Llorens Artigas, are dated 1941.

Three years later, Miró created his first bronze sculptures.

In 1964, Joan Miró took part in the creation of the Fondation Maeght where he had finally found a place in which to create monumental works.

The encounter between Joan Miró and Aimé Maeght proved essential. For the very first time, Miró’s sculpture was deliberately linked to both architecture and to nature, an infinite source of inspiration for him: he thus created specifically for the Fondation Maeght a garden of sculptures and of monumental ceramics, a dreamlike world inhabiting the « Labyrinth », and that serves as a reminder that Miró was not only a painter but was also a sculptor.

In 1974, ten years after the opening of the Fondation Maeght, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris exhibited a group of sculptures by Joan Miró. Nearly 40 years later, the Maillol museum is once more placing Miró in that perspective and pays homage to that powerful artist, who, just like Picasso, was simultaneously a painter and a sculptor
