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.

Madola is a multifaceted artist who trained at the Escola Massana and gained a PhD in sculpture from the Facultat de Belles Arts at the Universitat de Barcelona. Her extensive career, both as an artist and a theorist, is noted for her work with ceramics, in which she has continued the work initiated by Josep Llorens Artigas and Antoni Cumella. Through the use of new artistic languages, without abandoning the discipline’s cultural roots, she models her works by playing with the plasticity of clay, the colour, volume and form, and projects the figure onto the space, where she creates a symbolic atmosphere based on her own experiences. She has held solo and collective exhibitions around the world. Her artwork features in permanent exhibitions at several museums and she also has large-format works in urban spaces. She has received many awards throughout her artistic career, such as the prize for the best exhibition at the Salvador Espriu Centenary, awarded by the Generalitat de Catalunya in 2015.

Francesc Domingo
Barcelona, 1893 - São Paulo, 1974

Painter and engraver, linked to the second generation of Noucentism. He studied at the Escola Superior de Bells Oficis de la Mancomunitat in Barcelona. In 1918, he joined the Agrupació Courbet, an artistic movement which sought to renew the Catalan artistic scene drawing on a base of Noucentism. In the twenties he went to live in Paris and Brittany, and he frequently exhibited his artwork at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. He returned to Barcelona in 1931, where he was heavily involved in cultural life in the city during the Civil War. His restless spirit led him to Buenos Aires in 1951, and from there on to São Paulo, where he taught engraving at the Fine Arts school and also opened an art gallery. His art derives from an admiration for Picasso and a deep assimilation of Catalan Romanesque art, with a spiritual plasticism that places him in the Catalan avant-garde.
