Housed in a building designed by architect Agustín Ortiz de Villajos for the Duchess of Medina de las Torres. Following a series of restructuring and upgrading works the exhibition area now covers an area of around 1000 m2, divided into three rooms which are mainly used for exhibiting the plastic arts from the last third of the 19th century through to just after the Second World War. The exhibition rooms opened in the autumn of 2008, coinciding with a new international perspective in our programming following an in-depth review of the modernization of Spanish art between the last third of the 19th century through to the Spanish Civil War.
