El Clasico

Historical Quarters of Barcelona.

Best Graffiti Ever
View Across the street from Hotel



















First stop was the Picasso Museum which had a temporary exhibition “Picasso / Dali, Dali / Picasso” which featured rarely loaned works from more than 25 international art museums and private collections.  The exhibit is arranged to set up a dialogue between the two artists and their responses to common experiences happening around them and to each other's work.












 Santa Maria del Mar is a beautiful and important 14th-century church in Barcelona. It is considered the finest and most complete example of Catalan Gothic architecture anywhere.



Barcelona FC is a Sponsor of Cathedral


The porters of La Ribera, who collaborated in the construction of the church transporting stones, are represented on the doors of the main entrance
From there we walked to the the Barcelona Museum of History(Plaza del Rey)








 Lastly we enjoyed the Sardana Catalan traditional dance occuring right next to the Cathederal. As we walked around we got to see an amateur photography group taking photos of models.





Gearing up for the match.

    












   





The exhibition “Picasso / Dali, Dali / Picasso” promises to be an international blockbuster for both museums as it will feature rarely loaned works from more than 25 international art museums and private collections worldwide pairing works of these leading artists of our era. Dozens of works – with a focus on paintings, and also featuring drawings, prints and sculpture – will be on display exclusively at The Dali Museum St. Petersburg and the Museu Picasso, Barcelona.
“This Picasso exhibition offers the possibility of rereading the relationship between two key figures of twentieth-century art and exploring new interpretations of the period in which their lives and works intersected,” explained Dali Museum Director Dr. Hank Hine. “Both of our permanent collections are made up of works by arguably the two most influential 20th century Spanish artists. We are honored to collaborate with Barcelona’s Museu Picasso and our enduring partners at the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dali.”
