Barcelona highlights.

Thought I'd kick off with my Barcelona highlights. Firstly apart from the thieving I thought the trip was another success. Thanks to you all for contributing to that success. I hope you got as much out of it as the staff did. In no particular order in terms of art and impact my favourires were. Picasso (ignore at your peril) particularly the ceramics. Rodchenko, just the breadth of the work. Ian and I were taken with his theatrical collaborations and finally I was taken with a quite obscure American photographer I saw at MACBA called Ralph Steiner. Beautiful black and white images with a great sense of design and composition.
