The sculpture of Josep Llimona del Rt. The 4 Cats.

We are at the place par excellence of Barcelona's Bohemia, more than a hundred years ago. The place frequented by Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, a young Pablo Ruiz Picasso (who held there his first informal exhibition of portraits) and many others. A Pere Romeu inspired by the Parisian Le chat noir ran this place for only 6 years... enough to become a showcase of Bohemia, and a springboard for the most successful towards the French capital.

4 gats is located in Casa Martí (a modernist masterpiece building from Josep Puig i Cadafalch), and in its corner, there is a sculpture from Josep Llimona: Saint Joseph and Jesus child. If you know how to look, very close to the entrance door of 4 gats you will find a plaque that tells the misfortune that this sculpture experienced during the Civil War. Pay attention to it, you may need to move some element to read it, translate it... if you want, take a picture... later you will have to tell us information that can only be found here!
