Barcelona MNAC museum expands its collection
Three Picassos will be included in the collection of the National Art Museum of Catalonia which will also grow two rooms and debut a new exhibit
The National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC) has exciting news for art fans. First, it’s grown by two rooms dedicated to postwar art and the second avant-garde movement (1940-1980). Additionally, it’s also added three Picassos to its collection (from the Barcelona Picasso Museum) – and it’s soon to include a work by Miró, as well. Lastly, the project ‘Habitació’ by artist Pedro G. Romero will debut in the rooms dedicated to the Civil War.
The MNAC director Pepe Serra explained in statements to the Catalan News Agency (ACN) that the museum “has more than enough perspective to explain what happened after the Civil War” in the world of art. Serra furthermore explained that museumgoers can “enter through Romanesque art and leave through Tàpies,” meaning the period from 1923 to 2012, “in a natural way.”
