Hamilton Building - Level 1

Joan Miró: Instinct & Imagination focuses on artworks the Spanish artist created during the last two decades of his career (1963-1981). Joan Miró's (pronounced Jwan mr-OH) imagination and creativity extended well into his old age. Later in life, he continued the inventive forms for which he is known and began exploring new materials, including bronze. This exhibition features bronze sculptures–including Woman and Bird (Femme et oiseau)–which have rarely been seen outside of Europe.

An exhibition catalog published by the Seattle Art Museum in collaboration with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and in association with Yale University Press, New Haven, and London will be available in The Shop at the Denver Art Museum and in our online shop.

Joan Miró: Instinct & Imagination is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.
