08-07 Museu Frederic Marès

We spent the day at this remarkable museum, essentially the collection of a single man. Ellen read that he once said “I make sculpture so I can buy sculpture.” How did he find time to do all this? Our main interest were the pieces by the master of Cabestany which were taken from Sant Pere de Rodes, but there are many things which are Romanesque. Here is a slideshow of some of the Romanesque sculpture which we saw. (We saw many other things as well, but we did not take pictures.)
