Museu del Modernisme de Barcelona
The Museu del Modernisme, it is housed in a former textile factory in the centre of Barcelona, and offers visitors the chance to enjoy a cultural centre dedicated exclusively to modernista art.
The holdings of the new Museu del Modernisme de Barcelona come from the private collection that two Barcelona antique dealers, Fernando Pinós and María Guirao, have amassed during their 40 years in the business. The museum is dedicated exclusively to Catalonia’s home-grown art-nouveau movement, modernisme. The collection on shows consists of 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.

To mark the museum’s second anniversary,  new exhibits to further the work in the conservation and dissemination of modernisme have been added. The new exhibits include works by cabinetmakers and interior designers, such as the Busquets, Gaspar Homar, Francesc Jevellí and Antoni Gaudí; sculptures by Enric Clarasó, the Oslé brothers and the Masriera and Carreras studio. Other highlights include paintings by Ramon Casas, Joaquim Mir, Martí Alsina, Pere Borrell and other artists.

The Museu de Modernisme Català is housed in a centrally located modernista building designed by the architect Enric Sagnier. The Catalan vaults were restored and the original flooring on the ground floor preserved as part of the refurbishment project to house the museum. It has a floor space of 1,000m2. The top floor of the MMCat showcases the furniture and decorative arts and has a room dedicated to Antoni Gaudi. The ground floor displays paintings, sculptures and stained glass.
