This is our final blog post on our Miró exhibition. It has been a great experience, both writing the posts and reading your many hundreds of responses after seeing the exhibition.

Thank you for taking the time to write these comments. We are glad to say that many of you found it a rewarding experience.

Among your many comments we might pick out two or three that give a sense of how Miró has generated different responses. Frank Edwards wrote that he thought it was ‘one of the most powerfully emotive exhibitions I have seen in a long while’. Dragana Hartley felt it was a ‘wonderful demonstration of the intellectual struggle some artists experience’, while Elena found it a ‘deep reflection of the historical and cultural situation’ of Miró’s Spain. Younger visitors enjoyed it too. Penny Kocher (on her third visit) took her two great-niece (9 years) and great-nephew (11 years), neither of whom had ever been to an art gallery, nor seen a Miró painting before…but they ‘looked, liked and were intrigued’.

For those who have not yet seen the exhibition, it ends on Sunday 11 September. It then travels to our partners in making the exhibition, Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, where it opens on 16 October.
