The Majorca studio was hugely influential and integral to Miró’s creative output, as Joan Punyet Miró, the artist’s grandson, explains: “The Studio offered Miró a suitable working environment. When he closed the door behind him he knew he was cutting all contact with the outside world and entering into his imaginary universe. This imaginary space, his reality, was arranged upon a background of Mediterranean light, colours and shapes…”. Having lived in different locations in Europe throughout his life, often in different places at the same time in Paris and Spain, he finally settled in Majorca in 1956, where he had taken his family during the Second World War. The studio in Majorca became a refuge for Miró and he would work, unrelentingly, from the Majorca studio for over quarter of a century, until his death in 1983.
