Designed by Miró’s friend Josep Lluis Sert – the workshop, connected to his house – became the artist’s main studio in 1956, and was where he created most of his work until his death in 1983.
The artistic venue re-opened with new content to further reflect the life and work of the pioneering Catalan artist and to further convey the spirit of the artist whilst showing the studio exactly how it was before Miró passed away.
A new entrance has also been built on the east side of the building, which first leads into a small room (previously a storage space) before continuing into the main workshop.
Whilst the previous ‘Taller Sert’ featured original Miró paintings and sculptures from the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró a Mallorca collection, these have been replaced with 65 exact replicas due to concerns with the conservation of the pieces of art. Some of the original pieces can still be seen inside the Fundació Miro Mallorca.
The Fundació Miró Mallorca is easily accessible via public transport (bus number 104) from the centre of Palma and is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm and from 10am to 3pm on Sundays and bank holidays (winter timetable).
Tickets are priced from €7.5 per person and kids under 16 years of age go free. For more information about Miró Mallorca visit: www.miromallorca.com
