From 1909 to 2009, three members of the Català family worked as photographers and left us a hundred years of testimony. This exhibition allows us to delve into the enormous legacy of Pere Català i Pic, Francesc Català-Roca and Pere Català i Roca, the greatest exponents of photography in Catalonia. Their images are not only a witness of the artistic and cultural movements and currents that took place throughout the twentieth century, but they are also part of the iconography of the history of our country. Pere Català i Pic (1889-1971), his daughter Maria Àurea (1920-1993) and their sons Francesc (1922-1998) and Pere (1923-2009) were born in Valls and in 1931 they moved to Barcelona, where they lived until the end of their lives. Several adverse circumstances cut short the studies of the three photographers, but their restless disposition and eagerness for knowledge forged a self-taught background. Maria Àurea Català, trained at the Llotja, took part, as a retoucher, in the photographic adventure with her father and siblings. Admission: € 4 (reduced: € 3).
