Les Dames de Cerdanyola make sense
With ears, noise o fingers: The Museum of Art of the city of Cerdanyola (MAC) just installed a sensorial kit in order to help people with visual disability discover the iconic MAC’s work of art, Les Dames de Cerdanyola.

By the way, everybody can take advantage of this unique immersive experience to (re)discover these emblematic stained glass windows purchased by Barcelona Synchrotron Park and deposited in MAC jointly with Tití’s head, a Manolo Hugué’s scupture and Paller, a Joan de Vila’s painting.

Les Dames de Cerdanyola is a 3-large-panels (235x195 cm) stained glass window made in the 1910s. According to Joan Vila, it was created by the Alsacian glass master Ludwig von Bearn installed in Barcelona in the late 19th century but the authorship is still a mystery.

This work of art is representative of the Catalan Modernisme artistic movement and the cultural importance of the city of Cerdanyola at that time and during the Noucentisme, a Catalan cultural movement of the early 20th century that originated largely as a reaction against Modernisme.

Every year in Barcelona, Modernisme attracts millions of tourists that come to visit La Pedrera, La Casa Batlló or El Palau de la Música. In Cerdanyola, a few kilometers away from there, Les Dames de Cerdanyola offers a beautiful example of an unknown but valuable modernism work of art that awaits you and all your senses!
