Museu Nacional Information

The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya is located on the slopes of the hill of Montjuïc, dominating the city of Barcelona at its feet. The building housing the museum was constructed in 1929 under the name Palau Nacional (National Palace in Catalan) and has become an iconic landmark on the city’s skyline.

The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya is the leading center for Catalan Modernisme, a movement known as Art Nouveau in the rest of Europe, displaying some of the most important iconic works by artists from the beginning of the 20th century, such as Gaudí, Jujol and Ramon Casas.

Entering further into the 20th century, the museum also houses works by Picasso, Tàpies and Miró, key figures in the history of art.

Other outstanding European painters represented include Rubens, Velázquez, Goya, Titian, El Greco, Tiepolo and Tintoretto, all of whom are contextualized through interesting stories and themes from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

But the museum is renowned for conserving the world’s most important medieval collection of Romanesque frescoes, which are essential for understanding art, culture and European civilization of the Middle Ages.

Son. Imprints and figurations in Valls d’Àneu. An intervention by Oriol Vilapuig

The  Àneu valleys are the territory where the contemporary artist Oriol Vilapuig  most concen-trates his field of action. Located in the north of the comarca of El Pallars Sobirà, these valleys, with their symbolic potential, overflow-ing with nature, appear dotted with and unified by many Romanesque churches.  They  run  on  two  axes,  one  from  Sant  Pere  de  Burgal  to  Alós  d’Isil (south to north) and the other from Cervi to Son (east to west). This is the territory where the artist inscribes a micro-story based on the frottagetechnique, a  procedure that allows images to appear through contact, not drawing, thus revealing the bas-reliefs sculpted on the fonts that con-tained water and oil, and which we can find in the churches scattered around the territory. These stone containers, dated between the  elev-enth and thirteenth centuries, contained the holy water for the ritual of baptism and the oil for other religious rituals and for the church lighting.
