Joan Miró: Birth of the World

24 February–6 July 2019

Exhibition Overview

Miro Birth of World.jpg

Joan Miró. The Birth of the World. Montroig, late summer–fall 1925. Oil on canvas, 8' 2 3/4" x 6' 6 3/4".

Drawn from MoMA’s unrivaled collection of Miró’s work, augmented by several key loans, this exhibition situates The Birth of the World in relation to other major works by the artist. It presents some 60 paintings, works on paper, prints, illustrated books, and objects—made primarily between 1920, the year of Miró’s first, catalytic trip to Paris, and the early 1950s, when his unique visual language became internationally renowned—to shed new light on the development of his poetic process and pictorial universe.
