Our Guided Tours
of this museum looks at Spanish artists and their exploration of Modernism. We continue by discussing the invention of film and photography which contributed to the origins of Cubism. We look at Pablo Picassos early collage and continue to the wistful portraits of early Dali. We continue our exploration of Dali and after he joins the surrealists in Paris and the dramatic change his work undergoes. Our tour then takes you to the iconic Guernica by Picasso, painted in only 30 days for the International Fair in Paris in 1937, one year into Spains civil war. We finally look at Miros painting and a mobile sculpture by Alexander Calder which we compare to another much larger work by him in the beautiful and peaceful garden of the museum.
