Miró in the Rijksmuseum gardens

The gardens of the Rijksmuseum are adorned with 21 sculptures by the Spanish surrealist artist Joan Miró (1893-1983).

This open-air exhibition, which includes selected works from 1966-1982, marks the first time that Miró's sculptures have been put on display in the Netherlands.

Highlights of the garden show include the four-m-high Oiseau lunaire which makes its first public appearance.

Mirò created both figurative and abstract sculptures, with examples of both style on display in this free exhibition which is curated by Alfred Pacquement, the former director of the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
