MIR Pinturas was founded in Barcelona in 1933, by a group of entrepreneur artists, leaded by Mr. Felipe Jaurena Setoain. Initially as a pigment drugstore, they made paintings for a small group of postmodernist artists of the time such as Joaquim MIR, Anglada Camaras, thus creating a range of colors and tones with a marked Mediterranean character. MIR Pinturas is one of the oldest family companies in Europe, dedicated exclusively to the Manufacture of Artist Paints, Restoration and Handcraft.
