A survey of Joan Miro's career from 1918, the date of his first solo exhibition, to his last works. Its guiding thread is the idea of "Earth" in its widest sense. For Miro, "Earth" meant his native region of Catalunya, but the word also functioned for the artist as a key to certain ideas and values characteristic of rural culture such as fertility, sexuality, fable and excess. In addition, it is related to the quest for the ancestral and the primitive. In pictorial terms, the earthly can be seen as a mistrust of form and a tendency to experiment with material. These stylistic features, which the exhibition aims to highlight, allow us to see Miro as the great forerunner of Informalism and Abstract Expressionism, trends that prevailed in mid-20th-century art.
