Barcelona's Picasso Museum is one of its most-loved art centres, focusing as it does on the early years of the Spanish painter's life; he moved with his family to Barcelona in 1895 when he was 14 and already well established in his art studies. The city played a key role in his development; in places such as Els Quatre Gats café, he regularly met with other creatives involved in the avant-garde movement. But he was a man constantly looking for new experiences and inspirations, and this exhibition at the Museu Picasso looks at the impact that his first two visits to Paris had on him.
Among the artists on show are Manet, Degas, Cézanne and Gauguin (on loan from the permanent collection of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the Musée national Picasso Paris), whose work Picasso first encountered in person when he was in the French capital.
This is the main architectural event in Barcelona, a weekend in October where over 200 buildings of every shape and size open their doors to the general public. It is an initiative of the 48h Open House Barcelona association, which began in London in 1992. From then on, the concept of an 'Open House' has been implemented around the world: New York, Dublin, Galway, Tel Aviv and, since 2010, Barcelona, have their own week dedicated to local architecture. 'Open House' offers the opportunity to understand and experience architecture in a unique way, through an architectonic experience.
The program invites everyone to explore and understand the value of a well-constructed and designed space. In the last few years, this event in Barcelona has expanded to include cities and villages from the metropolitan area and the Maresme Coast, and on the roster of buildings to visit we will come across churches, schools, sports centers, apartment blocks, libraries and restaurants.
One of the greatest painters in history is the protagonist of this extensive new exhibition at CaixaForum. Diego Velázquez was born in Seville in 1599 and, before his death 61 years later, produced some of the most renowned works from Spain's acclaimed Golden Age. His renditions of the Spanish royal family (created in his role as the lead artist of the court of Felipe IV) such as 'Las Meninas' are particularly famed, but the Baroque artist also captured religious scenes as well as more down-to-earth subjects, including 1629's 'The Drunks'.
Today, the most important collection of his works is held in Madrid's Prado Museum and that's the source of many of the pieces on show here, which are compared and contrasted with those of several of his Spanish and European contemporaries such as Zubarán, El Greco, Murillo and Ribera. Don't miss this excellent opportunity to see a spectacular selection of 17th-century paintings at Barcelona's beautiful CaixaForum venue.
