Lively and charming, creative and rebellious, early twentieth century Barcelona was known as “la rosa de foc”, the “rose of fire”.
A new fervour kindled the artistic and cultural scene, where giants Picasso and Gaudí stood out against the background of a fiery social tension that sparked conflicts and attacks. Sealing Barcelona’s rise was the 1888 World’s Fair, which celebrated the economic and urban development of the Catalan capital and helped to spread ideas of renewal and modernization.
A kaleidoscope of paintings, drawings, jewellery, sculpture, and architectural and theatrical models stand as testaments to the fire of renewal that raged through all the arts.
