    [02] Miro exhibition in Thessaloniki

    An exhibition of more than 400 works by the noted Catalan artist Joan Miro (1893-1983), the largest ever hosted in Greece, was formally inaugurated on Tuesday at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki's (AUTH) Teloglio Foundation of Art in the presence of Spain's Queen Sofia.

    The exhibition, "Miro of Majorca", a collaboration between the Teloglion Foundation and the Foundation Pilar i Joan Miro of Majorca, presents one of the artist's greatest exhibitions in the country that includes a significant number of his works and documents featuring paintings, sculptures, etchings, drawings, sketches etc.

    The works date back to 1908 (his only salvaged early landscape painting) until his death in 1983. However, the exhibition mainly presents mature Miro in Majorca and the works he created in the workshop designed by his architect friend Josep Lluis Sert in 1956.

    The exhibition, that opened for the public on Sept. 6, 2009, has already been visited by roughly 2,000 people, art lovers and pupils, and will run until Feb. 5, 2010. It is held under the auspices of the President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias and the Spanish embassy in Athens.

    The Queen of Spain arrived in Thessaloniki from Athens where she was on a private visit since Monday. After visiting the exhibition she will return to Athens and on Wednesday she will tour the New Acropolis Museum.
