This exciting exhibition looks at how the Catalan painter Miró’s work was influenced by his close reciprocal friendships with other artists throughout his artistic life.

Among his long-term friends was André Masson whom he met soon after coming to Paris in 1920.  A part of the Surrealist Movement in the mid-late 20s he made friends with Fernand Léger, André Breton and Edward Burra.    In the 1930s, after leaving the Surrealist group, he became even closer to Picasso whom he had met in the previous decade.
