About

Successió Miró CB is a company formed in 1996 by the heirs to the estate of Joan Miró to administer the rights of the artist's works.

The heirs are the exclusive holders of these rights until 2063, in accordance with the Spanish intellectual property laws (la Ley de Propiedad Intelectual de 1987). Since these heirs are the sole copyright holders of the works of the artist, it is their charge to prevent any imitation, fragmentation or any other fraudulent uses of it.

Successió Miró CB is governed directly by the laws of Spain. The French organisation A.D.A.G.P. is responsible for the handling of the rights in all other parts of the world.

The Successió Miró archives, located in Palma de Mallorca, contains an unprecedented scope and depth of documentation on the life and works of Joan Miró: letters, documents and a 2000 images archive available as transparencies. Our digital image bank is still under construction.

If you intend to reproduce or in any other way use any document belonging to the Successió Miró, please complete the form to apply for reproduction permission, which can be downloaded here (if you are located in Spain). If you are located outside Spain, please contact the ADAGP or your relevant local organisation to request permission for reproduction.

ADOM

ADOM, (Association pour la Défense de l'œuvre de Joan Miró), was created on 30th January 2008 with the purpose to protect, develop and promote knowledge of the works of the artist.

Its committee is composed by seven members, among which are the painter´s descendants and the leading specialists on Miró’s work, presided by Ariane Lelong-Mainaud, and the Vice Presidency of Joan Punyet Miró.

This committee meets regularly to establish the authenticity of the works that it receives. It issues authenticity certificates and takes pertinent legal action against forgeries, imitations, and other fraudulent practices that might harm Joan Miró’s oeuvre.

To obtain a certificate of authenticity, the owner must present the original work to the committee. The fee for opening the dossier is of 150 Euros.

The price for an authentication certificate varies, according to the technique and the work’s relevance: for paintings, sculptures and ceramics the price is of 2000 Euros. For works on paper, the prices vary between 700, 1000 or 2000 Euros, depending on the piece’s importance.

For the authentication of graphic works, lithographs, prints, etc., one must contact Rosa Maria Malet, the directress of the Fundació Miró de Barcelona, who certifies the authenticity of the painter’s print work.
