The National Art Museum of Catalonia houses the most important collection of Romanesque mural paintings in the world and a collection of modern art that has recently been reinstalled. In the new display rooms you will find furniture and decorative art by Gaudí and Jujol that will take you back to the Modernista Barcelona of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Roof-Viewpoint offers unique vistas over the city and is an ideal place for enjoying the spectacle of the Magic Fountain.

The Renaissance and Baroque collection rooms at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya will be closed to the public from 30 May until the end of 2017, as a new presentation for the collection is being prepared.

Programme

The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia) offers a singular display of Catalan art of all periods. Recent temporary exhibitions have reclaimed and brought to the fore the role played by Catalan artists in relation to the international art context. The museum is now also looking at contemporary creation with the aim of presenting new proposals and provoking a dialogue and critical revisions of the collection.

MODERN ART COLLECTION

More than 1,300 pieces, some that have never been seen before, among which it is worth highlighting the furniture of la Pedrera and of the Casa Batlló, examples of the trencadís (the special mosaics of broken ceramics) of the Park Güell and other objects by Antoni Gaudí from the Sagrada Família. Works by Fortuny, Ramon Casas, Toulouse-Lautrec and Antoni Tàpies are also exhibited in a presentation which takes us up to the second half of the twentieth century, to the 1950s, and which includes art produced during the Civil War.

MODERN ART COLLECTION

TORNÉ ESQUIUS. POETICS OF THE EVERYDAY

Painter and illustrator, Pere Torné Esquius (Barcelona, 1879 - Flavacourt, France, 1936) began his career at the peak of Modernisme, although art criticism soon labelled him a Noucentista. Regardless of how he was classified, he had a very personal style -based on a unique perspective of everyday reality-, which was difficult to categorise. Torné Esquius dedicated himself to illustration, and it is in the domain of children illustration where he was most popular. This exhibition is the first retrospective dedicated to him by a museum and has collected a substantial part of his works for it.

Until 9 July 2017
