The MNAC's extensive Medieval art collection centered on the Renaissance and Baroque periods, while its exhibit on modern art detailed the evolution of Catalonian modernisme and its relationship with the industrialization of Europe and the major political events of the time. There was also a couple of smaller special exhibitions - one on the history of Spanish currency, and another on Salvador Dalí - or, more specifically, on his wife and muse Gala, and how Dalí's art was inseparable from the woman that inspired him and collaborated with him. Considering that we had just visited the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figures, that particular exhibit provided an especially interesting perspective. #mnac #art #barcelona #catalonia #spain #travel
Today was one of our unplanned, do-whatever days. We took the afternoon to check out the National Art Museum of Catalonia. The building was enormous, situated on a hill and overlooking a huge swath of Barcelona from the south. The museum's contents were slightly more modest than its facade would suggest, primarily divided between Medieval-era works and modern art (late 19th century onward). Despite that, there was still plenty to see, and it kept us occupied for several hours. #mnac #art #barcelona #catalonia #spain #travel

The National Art Museum of Catalonia MNAC, is the national museum of Catalan visual art located in Barcelona. Situated on Montjuïc hill, the museum is especially notable for its outstanding collection of romanesque church paintings, and for Catalan art and design from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The museum is housed in the Palau Nacional, a huge, Italian-style building dating to 1929. . . #travel #viaje #vacaciones #tourisme #city #barcelona #💕barcelona #lovelycity #beautifulview #reflection #beautifulcity #iphone #museum #mnac #nationalmuseum #palaunacional #photooftheday #potd #building #architecture #beautifulbuildings #barcelonagram #europe #beautiful #barcelonainspira #catalonia #igers

This image may not be used, reposted or reproduced in any way without prior written permission from the copyright holder. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Vall de Boí is a narrow, steep-sided valley in the province of Lleida, in the autonomous community of Catalonia, northern Spain. The valley is best known for its nine Early Romanesque churches, making it the site of the densest concentration of Romanesque architecture in Europe. It was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on 30 November 2000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Moorish conquest of Spain did not penetrate the high valleys of the Pyrenees. The first Christian counties in the region were set out in the 9th century, in which the local counts paid little heed to their nominal Frankish overlords. The population was largely Basque. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The valley first belonged to the county of Toulouse, to which was joined the County of Ribagorza. In the 11th century, the valley came into the hands of the County of Pallars, before being annexed by the Kingdom of Aragón in the 12th century. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the valley had a relatively low population in the Middle Ages, large quantities of silver enriched the local dignitaries to encourage them to join the Catalan campaign to recover Barbastro and Zaragoza. Much of the wealth was spent on the construction of many churches from the 11th to the 14th centuries, in the new architectural style imported from Lombardy. The churches are characterized by elaborate stonework and elegant bell towers. Wall paintings from the churches are conserved at the National Museum of Art of Catalonia in Barcelona. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many of the churches have remained in use for religious worship since they were constructed and consecrated in the 11th and 12th centuries. Nine churches were included in the World Heritage Site: Sant Climent and Santa Maria in Taüll, Sant Feliu in Barruera, Sant Joan in Boí, Santa Eulàlia in Erill la Vall, Santa Maria de l'Assumpció de Cóll, Santa Maria de Cardet, la Nativitat de la Mare de Déu in Durro, and the hermitage of Sant Quirc near Durro.

Joaquim Martí-Bas i Blasi (Barcelona, 1910 – París, 1966) Afusellament a la plaça de toros de Badajoz 1937 Oli sobre tela Adquisició a l’Exposició de Primavera de Barcelona, 1937 MNAC Barcelona 🎨🖼😯 Martí-Bas va ser un dels grans cartellistes de la II República Espanyola, molt actiu durant la Guerra Civil, motiu pel que es va tindre que exiliar al 1939 a França d’on no va tornar més. 📖 Es dedicà majoritariament a la il·lustració se llibres i al dibuix de còmics i vinyetes, col·laborant en multitut de publicacions de tot tipus. 📖  La masacre de Badajoz es produí entre el 14 i el 17 d’agost de 1936. Al estar feta pels sublevats vencedors, mai va ser investigada i el número de víctimes no es segur, oscilant entre 1800 i 4000 persones executades, segons les diferents fons. 📖 El responsable de la matança va ser el coronel Juan Yagüe, conegut des d’aquell moment com “el carnicero de Badajoz”. 📖 Durant tot el dia 14 soldats marroquins assassinaren indiscriminadament pels carrers de la ciutat, incloent xiquets i avis. Seguidament Yagüe ordenà que tancaren als pressoners a la plaça de bous, instal·lant focus per il·luminar l’arena. 📖 Durant tota la nit i el matí següent anaren matant gent, en massa a la mateixa arena o emportant-se’ls a un apart. Els mètodes eren l’ametrallament indiscriminat a grups de persones o l’afusellament. Els encarregats de fer-ho van ser legionaris i regulars marroquins junt a la Guardia Civil i membres de la Falange Española. 📖 El día 17 per tot Badajoz s’acumulaven centenars de cadàvers que es traslladaren en camions al cementiri on van ser incinerats i tirats a les foses comunes. La masacre va ser tant salvatge que conmocionà a tota l’opinió pública internacional. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #mnac #museunacional #guerracivilespañola #pintura #martíbas #arte #historiadelarte #matanzadebadajoz #lesfotosdesancho

Long day at the office ahead, hard work here in Barcelona. 😓 in the mean time I'm enjoying the weather, the views, the food, the sangria, everything! Plaça d'Espanya here, with a beautiful avenue marked by two Venetian towers leading up to Palau Nacional, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya on hill Montjuïc. #roomwithaview #workworkwork #brabotravel Brabo tip: go fancy with Sangria Cava, sparkling wine instead of the original red wine with soda. Mas caro, muy delicioso. 🍾🍹 ---------- #spain #catalunya #barcelona #barça #mnac #travel #holiday
