Description

Joan Miró’s relationship with Mont-roig del Camp was so strong that the genius, wherever he travelled, always had a Mont-roig carob. In Mont-roig Miró he had a masia, his holiday home, and here he developed his universe and his work. It was the place he always wanted to return to, to his artistic origins, to his main emotional scenery. He went to Mont-roig del Camp, after an illness, where he decided to dedicate himself to painting against his father’s wishes. He created here a large share of his first creative production which would soon become one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. He did this inspired by Mont-roig del Camp and its scenery, establishing a link with the country, based on interest in everyday objects and the natural environment.
