“Unseen Miró” is a tribute to the 25th anniversary of the public opening of the Fundació Pilar i Joan a Mallorca and, like the collection itself, centres in the last period of creation of the artist in the island, from 1956 when he first arrived until his death in 1983.

95 works never seen at the Fundació and some out of the way, in addition to graphic and documentary material. Pieces that travelled away years ago from the workshops of the artist, Sert and Son Boter, between the sixties and seventies.

Now “Unseen Miró” gather all these unique works in the place where they were first onceived, the territory of the Fundació that Miró create, like in a sort of a round trip that celebrates the gift of the artist to the city of Palma.
