Collections: Renaissance and Baroque Art

Home > Collections: Renaissance and Baroque Art

The Renaissance and Baroque Art Collection has gradually taken shape thanks to private collectors in Catalonia such as Francesc Cambó (Cambó Bequest), and has been enriched through successive individual contributions such as the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection. The collection then reflects the taste of a part of Catalan civil society for art produced in Spain and Europe during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries and offers us an overview of its evolution. The collection includes big names in the art world such as Titian, Tintoretto, Cranach, El Greco, José de Ribera, Francisco de Zurbarán, Diego Velázquez and Rubens.
