The starting point for this exhibition at Barcelona's Museu del Disseny is the role of art nouveau as the originator of design. A reinterpretation of the art déco movement that developed in Europe, and its Catalan offshoot, modernisme, based on the importance of the decorative, applied and industrial arts and crafts in design. The exhibition features lights, gold and silverware, decorative elements and unseen pieces by Gaudí to show the great splendour of the arts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The architect who attracts millions of people from all over the world to Barcelona every year is the star of this exhibition at the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, the MNAC. Together with the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, the "Gaudí" exhibition offers a major retrospective of both his work and him as a person. The exhibition comprises numerous original items by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926), including documents, drawings, paintings and sculptures, as well as a series of architectural design objects and furniture, which will form the centerpiece of the show. After Barcelona, the exhibition will travel to Paris and then go on to Madrid.
Through works from the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, the Museu Cau Ferrat de Sitges, the Biblioteca-Museu Víctor Balaguer and private collections; the Museu del Modernisme in collaboration with the Gothsland art gallery is presenting an exhibition that reveals a vision of Barcelona and Paris in the late 19th and early 20th centuries from a feminist perspective. The true stars of "París-Barcelona. La visión femenina de la Belle Époque" includes, on the one hand, muses of the time such as Madeleine de Boisguillaume, Stéphanie Nantas, Clo-cló and Júlia Peraire and, on the other, artists such as Suzanne Valadon, Georgette Agutte, Lucie Cousturier and Olga Sacharoff. Through more than three hundred works, mostly paintings, but also sculptures, furniture and decorative arts, the exhibition also creates a dialogue between the models and the artists who immortalized them: Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, Toulouse-Lautrec and Alphonse Mucha.
