The best art collection in Catalonia

The MNAC preserves the best collection of Romanesque art in the world, for the set of wall paintings from the Romanesque churches of the Pyrenees. Together with the Romanesque, the collection of Gothic art makes the National Museum a world reference in medieval art.

In the Renaissance and Baroque rooms you can see great names in universal painting such as El Greco, Rubens, Goya or Velázquez, present in the Museum thanks, in large part, to legacies and donations from Catalan civil society.

The modern art collection offers a story about the birth of modernity and the role played by art and artists. Works by Mariano Fortuny, Ramon Casas, Isidro Nonell, Joaquín Torres García, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró and Salvador Dalí, among others, stand out. The National Museum houses the largest set of pieces exhibited in a museum by Antoni Gaudí, the greatest exponent of modernism, and his collaborator, Josep Maria Jujol.

The rooms dedicated to the Spanish Civil War exhibit an outstanding collection of art produced during this period. The modern art tour ends with the postwar period and the second avant-garde. The collection thus extends until the early eighties of the twentieth century.
