- A careful selection of more than one hundred works from the Abelló Collection
- Excellent paintings and one sculpture, and drawings, including a suite of rare drawings by Pablo Picasso.
- It is a broad collection, with works created by both Spanish and international artists over a period of five hundred years from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries
The works of art gathered by Spaniards Juan Abelló and Anna Gamazon since the 1980s constitute one of the most important private collections in the world.
Fascinated by history and art, the couple has built a collection whose marked personality is based on the beauty and quality of its pieces. It is a broad collection, with works created by both Spanish and international artists over a period of five hundred years from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries. By concentrating particularly on artists underrepresented in Spain's public and private collections, the Abelló family has both pioneered the appreciation of foreign artists and contributed to a notable recovery of their own country's artistic heritage.
Published to accompany an exhibition at the Meadows Museum, Dallas, TX, until August 2015.
