Illustrator of modernity.

On the occasion of the Centenary of the death of the artist, the Museu Nacional and the Museu d’Art Jaume Morera are dedicating a solo exhibition to Xavier Gosé, one of the most international Catalan artists of the early 20th century. Gosé’s artwork could be described as Catalan Modernism and Art Decó. The artist was inspired by the everyday of cafès-concertmidinettes, by prostitutes, strollers in the boulevards, by horse racing, sportsmen, and Montmartre. His refined and elegant style perfectly caught the essence of the fashion and silhouettes of French society. This showing is part of the exhibition line followed by the museum in order to highlight Catalan artists of great quality, which started with artists like Josep Tapiró and Carles Casagemas.
