The collection

The collection is the point of convergence where the plural vision of the collector Antoni Vila Casas meets contemporary art. It is a map of movements and decisions to accept particular works that embrace different ideologies and creative languages. Encompassing the period between the 1960’s and the present, with a few previous exceptions, a number of currents of pictorial and sculptural creation in Catalonia are displayed. Only the photography collection is within an international framework.

Jesús de Vilallonga
Sta. Coloma de Farnés, Girona, 1927 - Barcelona, 2018

Jesús de Vilallonga trains at Ramon Rogent’s studio in Barcelona, and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris with Marcel Gromaire. He moves to Quebec in 1954, where he creates most of his artwork and establishes his own imaginary drawing on surrealism, symbolism and mannerism. Far from the abstraction and informalism which predominate at an international level, his artwork, based on figuration, is focused on a perpetual experimentation which propels him to work with multiple techniques such as collage, engraving, sculpture, and book illustrations, as well as the unique method that most defines his pictorial work: tempera painting.

Jean Marie del Moral
Montoire-sur-le-Loir, França, 1952

He started working with photography as a young man in France, the country of his birth to parents who were Spanish exiles. During his youth he produced reports for the French newspaper L’Humanité and he worked in Canada and the USA, where he came into contact with great photographers such as Paul Strand and Irving Penn. In 1977 he met Joan Miró, which had a great effect on his interest in photography. As a result of this, he dedicated himself to photographing the workshops and creative processes of artists from around the world, as well as collaborating with many international publications.

Jean Denant
Seta, França, 1979

Degree in Applied Arts and Fine Arts from Toulouse and Krakow. He is a multidisciplinary artist who creates painting, sculpture, architecture and design. Member of the Lieu-Commun artists’ association. He conceives architecture as a reflection on the evolution of humankind and, through it, invites a personal deconstruction. He starts from a reality that he transforms, distorts and decontextualizes in order to provoke a state of uncertainty and reflection in the public.
