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.

WILLIAM MORRIS AND THE ARTS & CRAFTS IN GREAT BRITAIN

From February 22nd to May 20th, 2018

This exhibition, which complements and engages in a dialogue with the MNAC’s Modern Art Collection, presents the work of William Morris, one of the leading lights in the arts, letters and culture of Britain in the late 19th century. The show explores in depth the many facets of this designer, craftsman, businessman, poet, essayist and social activist, and also looks at the main figures of the British Arts & Crafts movement.

The exhibition aims to present Morris not just as a historical figure but also the continuing influence of his work and his ideas, which spread beyond Britain into Europe, the United States and elsewhere around the world.

GALA SALVADOR DALÍ. A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN IN PÚBOL

UPCOMING: From July 6 to October 14, 2018

Gala (7th September 1894 – 10th June 1982), born into a family of intellectuals from Kazan (Russia), she lived her childhood in Moscow. Once she had settled in Switzerland, she met Paul Éluard, who she moved to Paris with and came in contact with the members of the surrealist movement such as, for example, Max Ernst.

In 1929 she travelled to Cadaqués, where she met Dalí, who she fell in love with, and with whom she started to live together. They were exiled for eight years in the United States, and on their return they would live between Portlligat, New York and Paris.

The exhibition will explore this enigmatic and intuitive lady, who related with many artists and intellectuals. Known worldwide for being the wife of Salvador Dalí, his muse and the protagonist of some of his paintings, we will attend the transformation of Gala into a fully-fledged artist, given that the couple began an artistic cooperation, that would signify the shared authorship of some works.
