Museu Picasso I do not like contemporary paintings, should I still go?

by 9tigers

I really do not want to miss something great but also do not want to go to one if it is not my taste for 9 euros. so for people that only like traditional oil paints and all, should I even bother to go?

many thanks

This museum includes pre-cubist Picasso((blue and rose periods) paintings and also shows you how he "deconstructed" "Las Minas" by Velasquez. This museum for me was well worth the price of admission because it shows you how Picasso developed into Cubism from more traditional methods. Increased my understanding of modern art. Of course it's up to you.

I'm not a big fan of modern art and Picasso is not among my favorite artists so I didn't care for this museum, I'd advise if you don't like Picasso or modern art, don't go. There's plenty to see in Barcelona if you skip one or two attractions. You can get an idea of the paintings on display by clicking here.

It's been a few years since we visited but all I can remember from the museum was a series of extremely graphic pornographic pencil doodlings, maybe it was a special exhibit

If you don't like it.....don't go.

It's one museum I did not get around to while we were in Barcelona, so I have to be a bit short on specifics.

However, I went to a Picasso exhibit somewhere else that displayed some of his early work. He was a fantastic "classical" painter before his experimental phases. If they have any of those, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Why not do a bit of research online (or with books) about Picasso's art before your trip?

That way you'll know whether the museum has any interest for you or not.

Here's another museum that I really like: Museum of Modern Art (Museu de l'Art Modern) in Parc de la Ciudadella.

http://www.channels.nl/barcelona/pages/1601.html

"Modern" art in Barcelona is the period we call 'Art Nouveau.' So, you might find stuff you like there. For some reason this museum doesn't show up in a lot of the lists. Not be be confused with the Museum of Contemporary Art.

yes I have been to the web site and love it, it is more of my taste :)

May I suggest if you do go on sunday afternoon, free after 3 or 3:30, that you WAIT till 5pm or so when the crowds thin down! We went at around 3:30 and got in free but it was a zoo! I,m not a big "art" lover but enjoyed the paintings and ceramics.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Definitely having Sangria...

by flipinflix

Definitely having Sangria along Las Ramblas and watch the day and the people go by was fantastic. I highly recommend the Picasso Museum as well, which house some the most spectacular pieces- namely my favorite, 'Guernica'.

Crema Catalana

by Danalia

1 litre of milk
6 egg yolks
1 lemon untreated
1 cinnamon bar
250g of sugar
Butter 1 piece
Caramel sauce


Peel lemon. Bring the milk with half lemon peel and cinnamon stick to a slow boiling. When the milk boils, remove the cinnamon stick from the milk and let them cold.
In the meantime, put the yolks and 200g sugar in a bowl, mix up a mass and clumps free.

Enter the cooled milk, and heat on low flame slowly stirring in one direction. Do not stop to stir when the mass become viscous.
Make sure that the mass does not begin to boil otherwise the cream could curdle.

Then add some caramel sauce in small tins then add the cream and allow to cool.

Enter the rest of the sugar into a pan with a piece of butter and let it caramelise. You may caramelise the sugar for not too long a period and not too hot a temperature in the pan, because it burns very quickly. The caramelised sugar now goes onto the cream.

The Catalans are using a special kitchen device to caramelise the sugar directly on the cream. This looks like an electric immersion, with only a shallow heating spiral and costs of about € 18-20. There is also a variant with a gas flame. This device to caramelise the sugar is operated with gas stove and costs around € 20-25.

Golondrinas

by andal13

You can sail by the port in a swallow... "Swallow" (golondrina) is the name of a ship you can find at Por Vell (in front of Columbus Monument). The trip lates an hour, and lets you see the port.

Puedes recorrer el puerto en golondrina... "Golondrina" es el nombre de una embarcación que parte del Port Vell (frente al monumento a Colón). El viaje dura una hora, y te permite conocer el puerto.

fashion and art near las Ramblas

by michelle30 about LA GAUCHE DIVINE

I was walking around in Barrio Gotico and I found an incredible boutique. The decoration of the shop is wonderful, pink walls, sculptures and paintings all around and furniture from well known designers, such as Mies van der Rohe or Sarinen.
The clothes are also special, they have the best spanish designers and some german and french designers too. My boy friend and I bought a lot of clothes for both of us and they invited us to a coffee.
The owners of the shop are very kind and they speak almost every european language so we did not have any problems to make us understand. I was surprised with the courreges dresses I found there. I haven't found this models anywhere else.
The expo they had when we were there was also great and the prices were correct. between 30 and 600 I would say. This is the range of prices I saw in the shop.
