  • The modernist enclosure of Sant Pau

    The modernist enclosure of Sant Pau

    In 2009, the health care activity of the Modernist Enclosure of Hospital de la Santa Creu and Sant Pau moved to modern facilities located northeast of the architectural site. Since then, the monumental site of pavilions constructed by Domènech i Montaner, a Unesco World Heritage site, provide their unique spaces of outstanding artistic and heritage value, to hold congresses, courses, events, knowledge centres, but also for guided tours and activities for everyone.

  • Toulouse Lautrec

    Toulouse Lautrec

    The work of Henri-Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec is instantly recognisable, with its swathes of strong colour, portrayals of a certain Parisian lifestyle at the end of the 19th century, and posters advertising everything from recitals to bikes. A pioneer of the post-Impressionist movement, he was extremely prolific and produced hundreds of works before his early death at 36.

    This exhibition at CaixaForum looks in the main at the artist's years in Montmartre, his nocturnal life and relationship with the cabarets and underworld of the French capital, through a series of paintings, posters and other items. After your visit to the show, it's well worth exploring the building of CaixaForum. Designed by celebrated Catalan modernista architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, it was originally a textile factory and featured a number of spacious halls that now lend themselves perfectly to exhibiting art. A guided tour is on offer, which includes a visit to the impressive rooftop.

  • Picasso Discovers Paris

    Picasso Discovers Paris

    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.

  • Velázquez and the Golden Age

    Velázquez and the Golden Age

    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.

  • Antoni Tàpies. Political biographer.

    Antoni Tàpies. Political biographer.

    Antoni Tàpies lived the post-war years, fracoism and anti-francoism and the inroduction of democracy in Spain. His works are a good example of these political conditions and of a silent politicization, in spite of censure. The Fundació Antoni Tàpies is exhibiting for the first time, a set of works from the fifties and sixties of the artist, both from its own collection and loaned from European collections. The aim is to understand the career of Tàpies from a biographic perspective, not of his life, but of his commitment by displaying the anti-francoist political struggles.

  • Heavenly murals

    Heavenly murals

    The chapel of San Miguel in the Royal Monastery of Pedralbes has reopened to the public after a meticulous restoration, granting us the chance to contemplate its murals from a new perspective. Thanks to information gleaned during the restoration and conservation process, it is possible to imagine the impact on people that the chapel must have had seven centuries ago. It is a remarkable piece of Catalan Gothic architecture that has been returned to its original splendor.
