The works of Spanish surrealist painter Joan Miro are coming to the Tate Modern in London.

It is the first time a major retrospective of the artist has been held in nearly 50 years.

The curator of the exhibition, Matthew Gale, told the BBC's Arts Editor Will Gompertz why the paintings are so significant, and talked about some of the artist's key pieces.
