The Museo Nacional dArt de Catalunya pays tribute to the Barcelona-born painter and writer Charles Casagemas whose short career is often overshadowed by his friendship with Pablo Picasso.
Together the two young artists set off to Paris where Casagemas committed suicide aged just 20. He left behind a small but powerful artistic legacy and is known for his melancholic, sometimes disturbing scenes, of women in brothels.
This exhibition presents most of the Catalan artist's known works: about 40 in total including oil paintings and sketches.
Mon-Sat 10.00-19.00. Sun 10.00-14.30.
