The art historian, antiquarian and gallery Artur Ramon proposes an “aesthetic and staff” tour d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC) National Museum in his new book ‘National Art Museum of Catalonia: a route’ (Editorial Elba) .

Through dozens of views of the museum, in direct contact with the works, Ramon proposed in this book is a chronological journey, following your personal taste, in what purports to be “a walk through the collections” of the museum.

The author explained to Europa Press that the idea for the book grew out of his interest in museums and correspondence between –objeto works pasivo– and visitors –objeto activo–, and that its objective is the bring the reader a museum with works of “high quality” but little known among locals and Spaniards.

The book includes descriptions, comments and reflections of the works that have most attracted to its author, reviewing many of the best known pieces of Catalan art, but also those who spend more unnoticed by the visitor.

Several historical figures, among them Joaquim Folch i Torres, Capdevila and Carles Llorens Artigas appear along a story that begins and ends with the last visit curiosities dedicated to Picasso MNAC before leaving Spain.

Ramon raises three proposals “just as good” for the reader to read the book before visiting the museum, I do so while –option preferible– or later.

The book is on the border between two genres: art criticism of the salons and travel literature, as Ramon was inspired by the texts of Baudelaire, Gautier, Chatwim and Eugeni d’Ors, all writers in the museum halls found the worlds condense the artwork to narrate.

The book, which is not intended to be theoretical or a guide, but a collection of aesthetic experiences, will be presented on Monday evening in the rooms of Gothic art of the MNAC, and will go on sale this Wednesday.
