After the museum opened, Barcelona City Council honoured its commitment to continue enlarging the museum’s collection as and when it could afford to do so. The acquisitions policy has followed two key goals: to increase the number of artworks and to build up the sections of paintings and drawings by focusing on the key periods in the museum’s collection.

We believe the most significant acquisitions are the oils paintings Painter Working (1965) and Fairground Stall (1900), the sculpture Woman’s Head (Fernande) (1906), the Catalan Sketchbook (1906), the drawings Madrid Bohemia (1901) and Portrait of Jacqueline with Ribbon (1963), and several illustrated books with prints by the artist.
