Modern Art

Our collection of Modern Art comprises a wide range of styles of the 19th and 20th centuries, from Neoclassicism to Avant-gardes of the 1950s, including Catalan movements such as Modernisme and Noucentisme. There are artworks by FortunyCasasRusiñolGaudíJujolPicassoGargallo, Juli González, Torné Esquius (link in Catalan) and Joan Miró.The first floor devoted to Modern Art reopened in September 2014, after a renewal process of museography, rooms and collection. The new display of the Collection of Modern Art offers a new critical and complex exhibition dialogue that avoids the mere succession of styles and names and includes all the artistic productions of the period: sculpture and painting, photography, poster art, cinema, architecture and the decorative arts. Moreover, the new display highlights the social, historical and artistic context of the artworks and the international connections of Catalan artists and movements.
