Catalan master Joan Miró had a deep affinity for Mallorca, the island where he lived out the last three decades of his life. While his studio in the capital of Palma is a must-see, 20th-century art enthusiasts should also visit Deià’s Belmond La Residencia, which has mounted a private exhibition of 33 original artworks from the Miró estate. These include Archipel sauvage V, 1970 and Paysanne aux oiseaux, 1981, a lithograph made just two years before his passing. The paintings are hung throughout the hotel’s café and restaurant, and will be displayed until the end of 2017.
