The Art of Joan Miró in Rome

rueNext March you will have the chance to admire in Rome the work of Joan Mirò one of the most famous spanish painters of the past century.

Through his art, Mirò tries to break free from the constraints of figurative painting (that is, painting things just as you see them) to expriment with shapes and colours: the result is playful as is colorful but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t offer any emotional deepth or intellectual rigour.

The works of this remarkable painter will be displayed from March 16 2012 to June 10 2012 at the Chiostro del Bramante, which can be easily reached from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes in Rome taking the bus 40 from the Termini station (Stop Chiesa Nuova).
