7 thoughts on “Selloff of Joan Miro paintings prevented

    • Yes, this is one of the most important Miro collections in the world. If the present Portuguese government would have any long term insight, then they would house these works in a museum, which might attract many tourists. However, now the short-sighted government almost succeeded in selling off this art to some millionaires who might keep seeing these paintings reserved to themselves and their inner circle; depriving art lovers in Portugal and elsewhere of them.

      There is mass opposition in Portugal against the sale plan, which contributed to today’s (provisional) victory.

      • Of course! They could have a Miro Museum and keep it for the Portuguese people AND to boost tourism…and make money out of it week in week out! I hope it doesn’t go ahead.
