Cavorting in Catalonia: Museu Europeu d'Art Modern

During the time I was in Barcelona, I happen to have been there during the weekend of the Night at the Museums. This means that several museums in the city are open outside of their regular opening hours. It was a Saturday night, and plenty of museums were open until midnight. I decided to visit the Museu Europeu d'Art Modern. This is a museum that has plenty of sculpture from the 20th century. And it was good that it was free that night.

I walked in, and got a free ticket. Unfortunately there were plenty of other visitors; after all, it was a free night. So I couldn't really concentrate on admiring the various things I saw. However, I still got to take lots of photographs. Most of the sculpture that I have seen didn't really look modern; I guess I was expecting something more contemporary, but then apparently Catalan 20th century sculpture didn't look too modern for me. Nevertheless, I enjoyed what I saw. Unfortunately, I don't have much to say about the pictures, so I'll just post them here for you to admire.

Most of the pictures are details of the whole sculpture; I find capturing details more dramatic than the whole thing. Hopefully you'll agree.
