Barcelona Paintings Can Be Found Off The Beaten Track

By Cathy Mercer

Aside from being the home of one of the greatest soccer teams in the world, Barcelona also has a thriving arts scene. Aside from the illustrious Picasso Museum, there are many places that do not follow convention, some actually seem to def description. Locating and visiting the more obscure places where Barcelona paintings are located will keep you bust throughout your stay.

One place that might not seem an obvious place for art is the Palau Dalmases, situated in La Ribera. At first glance you might think the doorman outside the building is waiting for royalty to arrive, but he’s waiting for you. As you might expect, the decor is very opulent. However, aside from quality reproduction paintings, Palau Dalmases has an excellent bar that serves wine and beer.

The great thing about going to the more obscure places is that you’ll find less people have discovered them. However, when you go to the Esther Arias Gallery you’ll wonder why the masses aren’t flocking to it. The gallery often showcases work from a guest artist, but mainly it has work from the founder, Esther Arias. She specializes in surreal artwork which some have called dreamlike.

The Frederic Mares Museum is one of those places you’ll probably have to already know about in order to see it. You’d probably not guess that its located in a medieval palace, alongside a Gothic cathedral. Fans of religious regalia, such as crucifixes and sculptures of Madonna and Child, will take a shine to the place. Upstairs you’ll find rooms that house the many objects collected by Frederic Mares on his travels, some with religious connections and some not.

While many tourists scour all the famous landmarks, those that are a little more adventurous will find their courage rewarded. Consell de Cent is a street where the posher galleries are located. The traveler with a bigger budget is more than welcome, especially as prices are among some of the more expensive in Barcelona. Unsurprisingly, the art is of a very high standard.

Artevistas is a place that will cater to almost all budgets. It’s an excellent place to pick up work from up and coming talent. Many artists have started out selling from Artevistas before moving on. It might be quite a hard place to locate because it’s situated along a passageway off the main roads.

People that dislike walking long distances will love Carrer Enric Granados, one of the main streets in Barcelona. It has bars, art galleries and restaurants all on the same street. ADN and Ego are just two of the many places where you’ll find artwork. And the best thing is that after walking around you’ll be able to rest your feet at one of the outdoor restaurants on the same road.

If you like avoiding large crowds and are after Barcelona paintings, then there are many options for you to try. The side streets are filled with small galleries, each brimming with the work of painters just waiting to be discovered by you.
