Joan Miró Atelier | Palma de Mallorca

Joan Miró Atelier | Palma de Mallorca

After years of incessant travel, in 1956, Joan Miró settled down in Mallorca, an island he had visited ever since he was a small child. It was at this point that Miró was able to have the studio of his dreams, the Sert Studio.

The studio was designed by Josep Lluís Sert, a prestigious architect and friend of Miró’s, representative of the modern architectural movement and Dean of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design at the time. Sert had been disqualified from working as an architect in Spain for 20 years, and so the studio marked a turning point in his career.

Sert designed a building that fitted in with the terrain’s hillside terraces. Miró helped him with practical aspects, suggesting that he bear in mind Mallorca’s climate and the studio’s atmospheric conditions. He asked Sert to make sure that the work and storage areas were clearly separated so that he could keep his distance from any canvases that had been left to rest. He also reminded Sert to take into account the dimensions of large paintings, like his Cincinnati mural, in the design of the work area. In the autumn of 1956, the studio by Sert was completed and Miró was delighted with the outcome.
