Palma.—A rare collection of Joan Miró’s paintings will be on display until March at the Soller railway station in Palma.
Joan and Teo Punyet Miró, grandchildren of the renowned late Catalan artist, presented the new painting exhibition on Thursday evening  in the company of friends and family.
The art work, belonging to Joan Miró’s private collection, will be on display in the old station garages which have been converted  in to art galleries.
Entry is free and the exhibition will be open from 10am until 3pm Tuesday to Saturday.
Both grandsons showed their great satisfaction  with the transformation the old garages have undergone, with Joan reminding the “industrial site  was inaugurated on the day the Titanic sank”.
As the commissioner for the exhibition, Joan Punyet Miró explained to those present the background of three of the first paintings.
“The first two objects of art  were in my mother’s dinning room and were a gift from my grandfather to his daughter. The third was a gift from my grandfather to my father.”
