París - Barcelona 1888-1937

28.2.2002 - 26.5.2002
Museu Picasso

This exhibit shows the artistic exchanges that linked the two cities from the end of the 19th century until the middle of the 20th. Two important dates open and close the itinerary: 1888, the year of the Universal Exposition in Barcelona, which led to the updating of the city and coincided with the outbreak of Modernism, and 1937, the date of the Universal Exposition of Paris, where Picasso’s Guernica and Miró’s El segador were presented in the pavilion of the Spanish Republic, which was built by Sert.
The presentation gives a view of the period in terms of the great modern movements, from Art Nouveau to Surrealism, exemplifying them through the artists who lived between these two cultures (Casas, Rusiñol, Picasso, Miró, Dalí, etc.), without forgetting specific phenomenons such as Noucentisme.

The chronological discourse is articulated around the key figures of the period (from Le Corbusier to Rodin, Picasso, or Cézanne) keeping in mind, as well, the contribution of several Catalan personalities such as Eugeni d’Ors and the art dealer Josep Dalmau.
