The Museum of Modernism presents Barcelona as it was in former times

Up until the 15th of October an exhibition entitled “A Portrait of Barcelona, the evolution of a city” presents a collection of photographs from late 19th and early 20th century to the general public for the first time

The Museum of Modernism presents A Portrait of Barcelona, the evolution of a city, a first-time exhibition of photographs from the museum’s collection. The Barcelona portrayed is mainly that of the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries: images and objects from the era that offer the visitor an insight into the urban transformations that took place in the city, the fashion of the moment, the leisure activities of the Catalan bourgeoisie and the technological innovations of the time such as tramlines and traffic lights.

Divided into seven sections, the exhibition presents 33 photographic reproductions of various sizes, a camera dating from 1900 and a video that allows the visitors to immerse themselves in the city as it was at the turn of the century, among other elements. In addition to acquainting the visitor with the customs of the beginning of the last century the exhibition also provides an insight into the early photographic processes.

The exhibition forms part of the fifth anniversary of the Museum of Modernism, a private entity housed in an also-modernist building designed by Enric Sagnier, and focusses on the diverse disciplines of Catalan Modernism.

Above all, the museum wishes to make public the private collection of the husband and wife antique dealer team consisting of Fernando Pinós and Maria Guirao.
