From 24 January, the museum's recently refurbished and enlarged areas devoted to 15th, 16th and 17th century art will have new works and new lighting.
The fact that the National Art Museum of Catalonia is renowned all over the world for its collections of Romanesque and Gothic art doesn't mean that it is lacking in other areas. In fact, the MNAC collection of modern and contemporary art is also very important, and from now on promises to be even more so. Following a period of enlargement and reforms, the rooms devoted to Renaissance and Baroque art are able to offer an even more profitable and profound visiting experience. Thanks to this renovation project, which was led by Pepe Serra and his team, the museum can now boast of more than 1,300 square meters of exhibition space devoted to art from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, together with new contributions by the Fundació Institut Amatller d'Art Hispànic, which have yielded two works by Bartolomé Bermejo, and donations from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection and the Cambó Legacy.
In total, the collection has grown by more than one hundred works, reaching a total of 250 items, including unique pieces by Velázquez, Ribera, Zurbarán, El Greco, Tiziano, Canaletto, Fra Angelico and Cranach, among other painters of the period. The collections also offers new itineraries and lighting.
You can plan your visit now with information from the MNAC website.
