Apse of Sant Climent de Taull (c. 1123) by the Master of Taull
While many people associate Barcelona with modern art such as that of Pablo Picasso or Joan Miró, the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC) is also home to the largest existing collection of Romanesque art in the world. Including artwork gathered from churches, chapels and monuments across the region, the collection boasts some of the finest example of the genre to be found anywhere. One of the highlights is the Apse of Sant Climent de Taull, believed to have been painted back in the early 12th century by the Master of Taull, considered one of the greatest mural painters of his era.
