Barcelona attracted a number of unconventional artists in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and their work may be encountered not just in museums and galleries but in the very streets of the city.
Gaudí's incredible Sagrada Familia, like the Joan Miró Foundation, is a place where you walk actually within an art-work.
The Picasso Museum houses more than 3800 works from different periods of his life, while there are two museums specifically concentrating on a wider-ranging insight into modernism in its many forms: MMCat has 350 works by 42 of the most representative modernista artists, including Joan Busquets, Ramón Casas, Antoni Gaudí, Gaspar Homar, Josep Llimona, Joaquim Mir and Puig i Cadafalch, in their different disciplines: painting, sculpture, furniture and the decorative arts; while MEAM houses, among many others, a unique collection of Art Deco.
If all this is not enough, then an hour or two from Barcelona is the town of Figueres, birthplace of Salvador Dalí and home of his Theatre Museum. This is his magnum opus, conceived of and designed by the artist in order to offer visitors a genuine experience that would take them into his entrancing and unique world.
