1906 and 1934, two dates that define the relationship between Picasso and the Romanesque art. In 1906, in a key moment of his style transformation, the artist settled for some months in a village called Gósol, located in the Catalan Pyrenees. Almost thirty years after that, in 1934, he visited the Romanesque collection that these days you can see in the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya. The exhibition attempts to capture the possible affinities that may be established between these dates and the work of Picasso.
