This exhibition showcasing the best of Xavier Gosé, one of the most influential Catalan artists of the early 20th century, is the latest in a series by the MNAC dedicated to highlighting the work of the region’s most revered artists. Gosé was born in 1876 and began his career as an illustrator. In 1900, he moved to Paris and soon became known for his elegant artwork, which mostly portrayed everyday scenes of French society at the time. From ladies lounging in cafes and people strolling along the boulevards, to horse racing and sportspeople, he brought the French capital to life with his trademark style. When the effects of World War I began to be felt in Paris, Gosé moved back to Catalunya, and unfortunately died shortly afterwards from tuberculosis. This exhibition coincides with the centenary of his death and celebrates his legacy in both the Catalan and international worlds of art.
