Expert review of Museu Fundacío Juan March

Extraordinary private art collection courtesy of Majorca’s millionaire March family.

I visited this collection for the first time in October 2010 and was blow away by it. The Marches – a seriously wealthy banking family - collected as much fine Spanish art as any of the bigger museums in Barcelona. But unlike many of the world’s top galleries, which are so huge these days you barely know where to start, this place squeezes a little bit of everything in a relatively compact space. Highlights are Joan Miró’s jolly ‘Parrot’ and Antoni Tàpies ‘Earth Colours on a Yellow Background’ contrasted by Antonio Saura’s disturbingly dark works, and twisted sculpture by Eduardo Chillida. Impressive stuff.

Price advice: 

Free.

Expert tips: 
Mid-afternoon, mid-week you’ll have the place more or less to yourself.
Don’t miss the rotating exhibit of Picasso’s etchings and drawings. Currently it’s his study for ‘Minotauromachie’ – considered his masterpiece as a printmaker.
