As we journey to the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya  or  MNAC Museum, the architecture and location is breathtaking.  Its placement and size imply high importance’s to the Catalan culture and the local population. The Catalan Museum offered a variety of images that stem from political issues to religious themes. The repetitions of the images of Saint George shows the importance and the impact to locals. As for the image of liberty, the propaganda shows the struggle many people of this region suffered during the Civil War. When comparing these imageries, I can not help but compare it back to similar themes found in the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen.  The art museum offers images of Emiliano Zapata, a revolutionist and an important political figure in Mexican culture. Though not important to Chicago’s entire culture, it is important to a community found in Chicago. Furthermore, religious painting such as those of the Virgin Mary is shown to the public. However, images of the Virgin Mary are portrayed differently in both museums. This form of imagery has different connotation among both cultures. As for architecture, there is a huge difference among both museums. The National Museum of Mexican Art is hidden within a neighborhood and fairly small. The MNAC Museum, however, stretches across a couple acres. The MNAC’s colossal size almost serves as a beacon. it embodies nationalism seen throughout  Catalunya.
