Catalan National Art Museum (MNAC) is housed in the magnificent palace overlooking the fountains of Montjuic.

 

You will found there Catalan works of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance arts from 11th to 18th century. Very interesting museum even though quite long to visit.

Tickets for Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya at 12€

 

The MNAC embraces all the arts (sculpture, painting, objets d'art, drawing, engraving, posters, photography and coinage) and has the task of explaining the general history of Catalan art from the Romanesque period to the mid-twentieth century.

 

In the case of the Romanesque and Gothic collections, this discourse is characterized by the Catalan provenance of most of the pieces, although, particularly in the Gothic, comparisons are made with art from other provenances.

 

With regard to the Renaissance and Baroque collections, the works included lead to a more international discourse, with the work of great painters, such as El Greco, Zurbarán, Velázquez, Cranach, Rubens...

 

The MNAC art collections from the end of the nineteenth century and the early decades of the twentieth century are once again mostly made up of the work of Catalan artists, forming a discourse which explains Modernisme, Noucentisme and the Avant-garde, always taking into account all the arts.

    What an awesome place to visit!

  3. MNAC - D G Fusco (5 May 2007 - 00:00)

    thank you for the link to MNAC's website, this superb european treasure house is well represented by the generous web site. The spiritual experience of the Romanesque collection, and the stunning theatricality of it's presentation by Aulente, make this the perfect counerpoint to Barcelona's contemporary vibrancy. (and the view from the front door takes in the whole city!)
