Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors at Joan Miro Museum

The Museo Fundacio Pilar i Joan Miro overlooks the port area of Palma, Mallorca. There is another museum dedicated to the surrealist painter, Joan Miro, in Barcelona, but Palma is where he lived and worked at the end of his career. His roots were in Mallorca. The museum contains over 5,000 artistic pieces – paintings, drawings, sculpture, collages and graphic works.

The doors featured here are from his studio, Son Boter, an 18th Century rural house.

To the side of the studio, there is a barn door and an ancient wooden wheel. P1330814P1330812

There is a fantastic exhibition of his work, “Miro – a wild spirit” in the main gallery, which is well worth a visit. In the gardens, there are some interesting sculptures which are not in the scope of Thursday Doors. But I can’t resist sharing the anthropomorphic planting signs.P1330822P1330823P1330824P1330825
