Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893 - Palma, 1983) is one of the world's most famous 20th century artists. The origins of his artistic universe can be traced back to Mont-roig and, in particular, to Mas Miró and its surrounding landscape. It was here, in 1911 after a depression, that he decided to devote himself fully to painting. Miró invariably spent every summer through to 1976 at the farm of Montroig. Mas Miró foundation is composed of a main farm house, a studio, a small altar, the old chicken coop, the old stables, the garden and the fields.
The studio is the most important part of Mas Miró. Visitors can admire the studio just as it was the last time that Miró worked there in September 1976. This is a separate building, where Joan Miró devoted himself to creating and working on projects. Built in the late 1940s, it was designed by the artist himself so that he could work on sculptures there. Various objects that were used by the artist can still be found there, such as painting tools, sketches, materials and other miscellaneous items. On the walls, some graffiti can be seen, painted by Miró to develop his ideas. Fundació Mas Miró is a private non-profit-making organization created in 2013 and it's the third point in a major Mironian triangle, also made up of the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona and Miró Mallorca Fundació in Palma.
