The collection of drawings from the 20th century brings together numerous works from some of the most important artists and illustrators of the 20th century. It includes established names from the European avant-garde: Matisse, Schiele, Degas, Rodin, Picabia and Klimt, as well as prestigious Spanish artists like Picasso, Miró, Gutiérrez Solana, Regoyos, Chillida and Vázquez Díaz. The collection also boasts a significant number of works by Penagos – the Spanish art deco illustrator par excellence. Our collection was also enhanced by a donation from the García Viñolas collection which introduced artists from the 19th and 20th centuries, including Fortuny, Pinazo, Barjola and Viola.

Our photography collection includes a number of renowned artists such as Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander, Diane Arbus and Helen Lewitt, as well as more contemporary artists such as Fazal Sheihk and Dayanita Singh. Famous Spanish artists such as Joan Colom and Alberto García-Alix feature, and there is a notable collection of works from Paul Strand, Graciela Iturbide and Nicholas Nixon, including the series “The Brown sisters” from the latter.
