Until the 13 September 2010 – Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
The series Dutch interiors by Joan Miró (1893-1983) will make its debut at the Rijksmuseum. Miró travelled to the Netherlands in 1928 and included the Rijksmuseum in his itinerary. Two interior scenes by 17th-century Dutch masters Hendrick Sorgh and Jan Steen inspired him to create a series of three paintings, which represent one of the highlights of Miró’s early surrealistic work. The Dutch Interiors, including sketches and drawings by Miró, have never before been displayed alongside these 17th-century works, which were the original source of his inspiration. This exhibition by the Rijksmuseum uniquely brings together art from the past and present.
