Museu del Modernisme Català (MMCat)

 

Created in 2010 and located in an old textile factor in the heart of Barcelona, MMCat is a museum dedicated exclusively to Catalan Modernista art.

 

The works on display at MMCat come from the private collection that two Barcelona antique dealers, Fernando Pinós and María Guirao, have amassed during their 40 years in the business. The museum exhibits a range of works from Catalonia’s home-grown Art Nouveau movement, modernisme. The collection on display consists of 350 works by 42 of the most representative Modernista artists, including Joan Busquets, Ramón Casas, Antoni Gaudí, Gaspar Homar, Josep Llimona, Joaquim Mir and Puig i Cadafalch, in their different disciplines: painting, sculpture, furniture and decorative arts.

 

To mark the museum’s second anniversary, new exhibits to further the work in the conservation and dissemination of Modernisme have been added. The new exhibits include works by cabinetmakers and interior designers, such as the Busquets, Gaspar Homar, Francesc Jevellí and Antoni Gaudí; sculptures by Enric Clarasó, the Oslé brothers and the Masriera and Carreras studio. Other highlights include paintings by Ramon Casas, Joaquim Mir, Martí Alsina, Pere Borrell and other artists.

 

MMCat is housed in a centric Modernista building designed by the architect Enric Sagnier. The Catalan vaults were restored and the original flooring on the ground floor preserved as part of the refurbishment project to house the museum. The museum is spread across 1,000 m2. The top floor of MMCat showcases the furniture and decorative arts and has a room dedicated to Antoni Gaudí. The ground floor displays paintings, sculptures and stained glass.
