Museums and Gaudi in Barcelona

We visited several museums while in Barcelona on our Art Escape. Miro was impressive and there were many good discussions about his work and how he created.

 Even the tiles along the sidewalk were designed by Gaudi. Some of the original drawings and mockups. Maria from Forever Barcelona was our guide that day.

We visited the Picasso museum but were not able to take pictures. What struck me in that particular museum were the photographs of Picasso sitting at a table with pieces of pottery lined up behind and next to him waiting for a brush of his stroke, like an assembly line. Not what I pictured a famous artist having to do at the end of his career.
