LateRooms.com - Discover Picasso vs Russinol in Barcelona

August 04, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
LateRooms.com can reveal that a fascinating exhibition is being staged in Barcelona entitled Picasso vs Russiñol, which looks at the way the two artists are connected.

Guests staying at one of the many cheap hotels Barcelona has to offer can check out this display by heading to the Museu Picasso, which is found on Montcada and can be easily reached by public transport.

Tourists will be treated to an in-depth study of how Picasso is linked to Russiñol and the influence they have had over the art world as a whole.

Opened in 1963, the Museu Picasso contains more than 3,800 works in its permanent collection and puts in temporary displays as well.

"The history of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona is the chronicle of the artist's firm wish to leave the imprint of his art in our city," explained the venue.

If people only want to see this temporary exhibition, admission is 5.80 (£4.85), but for 9 they can see the rest of the museum as well. Concessions are available.

Visitors can enter the art space between 10:00 and 20:00 local time every day except Monday - when it is closed - but they should be aware that access to the rooms will shut half an hour before final closing.

For more information on this event visit the Museu Picasso website or contact the venue on 0034 93 256 30 00.
