    Catch a Miro or two, a Picasso and a Dali

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miro's first draught was not a stunning success

    The Museu d'Art espanyol conteporani in Palma has been formed out of an 18th Century Mansion.

    The Entrance hall and stairway have been carefully preserved, but beyond that it follows the convention of many modern exhibition spaces by being a series of whites boxes in which the outpouings of various diseased minds are arranged.

    The first room is however of special note as it contains a couple of Miros, a Picasso and a Dali.

    I especially liked Miro's "the Perroquet"

    A little piece of heaven...

    A Beautific vision

    San Marroig, is the former residence of the grandly named Archduke Lluis Salvador.

    The mansion is a reasonable size and is furnished in an impressively expensive and luxurious, but non-ostentatious way - this guy knew about real style in spadefulls.

    Most visitors however, are more likely to remember the setting of the back garden high above the cliffs where he built (well I doubt he actually laid the bricks) a small neoclassical temple to give visitors a panoramic vista.

    From the vantage point you can you also see a view of a famous pierced rock, the Foradada, rising out of the water.

    My wife described the view as 'heavenly' - can't argue with that.

    The home of a great artist

    I have visited the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró twice. As I really like the work of Miro. Miro lived and worked in Mallorca for about 40 years. You can visit the former studio and get the impression that every minute he could come through the door ...
