Recently the  Modern  Art area of  the National Museum of Catalonia has been remodeled, the exhibition rooms and the collection have been changed, it is not a chronological museum anymore, they organized the art works following 4 different subjects:

  • Rise of the Modern Artist
  • Modernismes
  • Neocentismes
  • Art and Spanish Civil War

So I want to show you my favorite art works of each part

RISE OF THE MODERN ARTIST

At the end of XIX the artist became more individualist trying to find himself, he is against of conventionalism and he try to find authenticity into his workestiu-2014-010-300x171

MODERNISMES

Modernisme is Catatonia Art Nouveau, in the new MNAC exhibition they consider that we have different ways to understand this art style, so they start talking in plural

ART AND SPANISH CIVIL WAR

This is my favorite part of the new MNAC, they explain the conflict across art, the art works across the conflict. On my opinion it is extremely important to show  the civil war and all the facts  before the dictatorship appears, it is part of our collective unconscious and there are no so many places in Spain where you can  get good and impartial information
