Home > Collections: Drawings and prints

The collections of the Cabinet of Drawings and Prints, the result of the collecting activity of such distinguished personalities as the writer and critic Raimon Casellas, make it possible for us to observe some of the most representative artistic movements of Catalan art and the work of artists as canonical as Marià Fortuny or Ramon Casas, a large number of whose works it conserves. Along with these great draughtsmen, the collection of modern art posters, built up thanks to the efforts of Lluís Plandiura and the Modernista artist Alexandre de Riquer, is outstanding as a patrimonial series of works of great artistic value. A broad view of the early days of the advertising poster, the most singular aspect of the collection is the large number of works by American poster artists.
