Museo Picasso.Montcada 15-23
The Picasso museum is a key reference for understanding the formative years of Pablo Picasso. The genius of the young artist is revealed through the 4,251 works that make up the permanent collection. Furthermore, the Picasso museum, opened in 1963, also reveals his deep relationship with Barcelona: an intimate, solid relationship that was shaped in his adolescence and youth, and continued until his death.
The Picasso museum is very rich in regard to work from the formative years in the life of the artist; it is practically exhaustive up to the Blue Period. The Museum also houses an important representation of works from 1917, and the series Las Meninas (1957) as well as a comprehensive print collection.

In 1934 it opened its doors as the Museu d’Art de Catalunya, bringing together the medieval collection. Subsequently, in 1995, then as the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, the new rooms of Romanesque art were inaugurated, and in a successive way the public presentation of the collection was extended, a process that ended in 2004 with the integration of modern art.

Brassaï was one of the most prominent members of the group of European and American photographers whose work between the two world wars redefined photography’s identity and enriched its potential as a means of artistic expression.
The current show traces his career using over two hundred examples of his work. Curated by Peter Galassi, chief curator of the Photography Department of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York between 1991 and 2011, this represents the first retrospective exhibition of Brassaï organized since the year 2000 (Centre Pompidou) and the first in Spain since 1993.
It benefits from an exceptional loan from the Estate Brassaï Succession (Paris) and other loans from some of the leading institutions and private collections of North America and Europe: Museum of Modern Art (New York), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Art Institute of Chicago, Nicholas and Susan Pritzker, David Dechman and Michel Mercure, Philadelphia Museum of Art, ISelf Collection (London) and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Pl. de les Glòries Catalanes, 37-38
Museu del Disseny de Barcelona is the Catalan capital’s centre devoted to the arts of the object and design. The new museum was created as a result of merging the collections from four of the city’s museums: the Museu de les Arts Decoratives (devoted to the decorative arts), the Museu de Ceràmica (ceramics), the Museu Tèxtil i d’Indumentària (textiles and clothing) and the Gabinet de les Arts Gràfiques (graphic arts). Evidently, then, the common denominator of all these collections from the past and the present is the object and all that it signifies or has signified and contributed to our lives: from conception, creation and production to use in different epochs and societies, during both the artisanal and preindustrial periods and the industrial and digital ages.
