Between the hosting of the Universal Exposition in 1888 and the birth of Franco's Fascist regime in 1939, Barcelona was the primary center of radical intellectual, political, and cultural activities in Spain. Picasso, Miro, Dali, and Gaudi are among the artists who contributed to the creative vitality of the city and the flourishing of Catalan culture; works by them are included in the range of media -- painting, sculpture, decorative objects, furniture, and more -- that have been gathered from around the world to explore the relationships between the visual arts and the cultural and political events of the period.
