Museu Nacional dArt de Catalunya (MNAC)
the Modernist era, medal art underwent a process of radical
transformation thanks to its recovery as an artistic object
by sculptors such as Arnau, Blay, Gargallo, Parera, or Llimona,
Gaudís friend and collaborator, who made it into
an important field of experimentation.
In the context of Catalonia, this phenomenon presented its
own, well-defined lines of evolution, which gave, as a result,
pieces of peculiar beauty.
The present exhibit seeks to show the main characteristics
of Catalan Modernist medals, comparing them with European
and Spanish medals of the same period.
