The eighteenth-century mansion that houses the European Museum of Modern Art is divided into three floors. It contains a total of 230 twentieth and twenty-first century works of art belonging to 200 artists, from the least to the most experienced, and from various continents. The museum houses several collections including Art-Deco, twentieth century Catalan sculpture, twentieth century Modern sculpture and contemporary figurative art, some of which stand out for their surprising realism.
A startling museum
The European Museum of Modern Art in Barcelona contrasts with other worldwide Modern Art museums, since it features figurative art instead of abstract and non-objective art, which is usually represented in these museums, so, if you like realism, we recommend you include this museum in your itinerary.
