Miró and Picasso
Instituto de Turismo de España. (TURESPAÑA). Museu Picasso, Barcelona.Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, two great 20th-century Spanish artists, need no introduction. But what we would like to share with you, together with one of our experts, is what happened when they met in Barcelona during the height of the avant-garde era at the beginning of the century, when Picasso was 36 and Miró was just 24: a priceless selection of works that the artists themselves donated to the city as a token of their strong ties with Barcelona.
A visit to the Picasso Museum, which spans five large medieval mansions in the Gothic Quarter, and the Miró Foundation, created by the great rationalist architect Josep Lluís Sert in the middle of Montjuïc, should spark plenty of conversation about art, architecture, urban planning and commitment to the city.
