Miro StudioA LONDON art gallery is recreating Spanish artist Miró’s Mallorcan studio 60 years after he first built it.

From 1956 until his death in 1983, Miró worked in the purpose-designed space on the Balearic island after moving from Paris.

Random objects scattered across his canvasses included a tennis cap, an empty bottle of Cava, matchboxes, copies of the local newspaper and a mummified cat.

Miró, who died at the age of 90, worked in ‘a very chaotic place where every single thing had to be in the right place’, said grandson Joan Punyet Miró.

The exhibition runs from January 21 to February 12 at the gallery Bowman Sculpture.
