Barcelona – The Miro Foundation

P1080225

Any visitor to Barcelona will inevitably eventually confront the cities three famous artistic giants: Picasso, Gaudi and Miro. The Miro Foundation, a gallery which mainly, but not exclusively, features Miro’s art, is conveniently situated on the hillside below Montjuic. It was high on my list of places to visit during our stay.

TBH and I have visited a Miro exhibition before, at the wonderful Yorkshire Sculpture Park.      That was mostly sculpture, as you might expect at the YSP, whereas at the Foundation Miro’s paintings are more to the fore.

I think we all enjoyed it, I know that I did, apart that is from Little S who was infuriated.

“It’s kiddy scribbles, Dad.”

He was particularly incensed by two very large white canvases. One with a single small blue dot slightly off centre, and the other with a single line across it. (A scribble in S’s view.)

Even S must have enjoyed the view from the roof terrace though.

      Well, you said it. Actually, it really has to be a personal view on this one doesn’t it. If you don’t like it, well fair enough. Angela likes Rothko, who I think was an interior designer at best.
