The MNAC embraces all the arts (sculpture, painting, objets d'art, drawing, engraving, posters, photography and coinage) and has the task of explaining the general history of Catalan art from the Romanesque period to the mid-twentieth century.

In the case of the Romanesque and Gothic collections, this discourse is characterized by the Catalan provenance of most of the pieces, although, particularly in the Gothic, comparisons are made with art from other provenances. With regard to the Renaissance and Baroque collections, the works included lead to a more international discourse, with the work of great painters, such as El Greco, Zurbarán, Velázquez, Cranach, Rubens...Works by the leading exponents of the Catalan art nouveau movement, modernisme, including Gaudí and Casas.

New temporary exhibition "Gala Salvador Dalí"

Who was the real Gala?
The exhibition will unveil a Gala who camouflaged herself as a muse while forging her own path as an artist: she writes, imagines and creates her own image, in addition to playing an essential role in Dalí's artistic development.

This exposition allows us to follow Salvador Dalí’s evolution as a painter and brings together an important collection of his work. The exhibition will also present a selection of paintings, drawings and photographs by other artists who were part of this surrealist universe, such as Max Ernst, Picasso, Man Ray, Cecil Beaton and Brassaï. 
A visit to the rooftop viewing point, with its panoramic views of the city, is the perfect way to round off your visit.

Never before has an exhibition dedicated to Gala been proposed at an international level.
