Other pieces have come from the collections owned byPilar Juncosa,the artist’s wife,and Joan Prats,his close friend andthe driving force behind the idea of setting up the Foundation. TheFoundation has a large collection of paintings from all the differentperiods of Miró’s life.The works exhibited show the development of his art from his training in Barcelona and first contacts with theavant-gardes in the early twentieth century,the time spent in Parisand his links with the Surrealists.
