Picasso stars alongside Romanesque art in exhibition at MNAC

On Thursday, 17 November 2016, an exhibition on Picasso and Romanesque Art will begin at the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC).

Picasso, a Spanish artist had often neglected Romanesque art during his career, a discipline that flourished in Europe between the 11th to the 13th Century, often featuring strong symbolism such as crucifixes and skulls.

The exhibit will demonstrate the artist's ideas taken from the art style which he turned into his own, starting from when he stayed in the village of Gósol and would visit the statue of the Virgin of Gósol.

The exhibition revolves around 3 subjects:

  • His relationship with the Virgin of Gósol (1906-1907)
  • The Crucifix (1930-1937)
  • The Skull

This exhibition is in collaboration with the Paris Picasso Museum. 40 works will be on loan and exhibited for more than 3 months at MNAC.

This exhibition doesn't try to find a correlation between Picasso and Romanesque art because its style is unique in it, if not in trying to capture the similarities between the two.
