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.


Eduard Alcoy
Barcelona, 1930 - Mataró, 1987

Starting with figurative work of an expressionist nature, in the mid-1950s Alcoy was a founding member of the Sílex Group and turned more towards geometric abstraction and informalism. In 1963 he ended his informalist period to return to figuration with work of a decidedly dreamlike character.  Later, in the 1970s, he quit advertising and graphic design to concentrate on painting, while at the same time broadening his artistic remit to include other forms of expression, such as sculpture and jewellery. Up until his early death, his works of magical figuration displayed a range of constants such as landscape, madness, apocalypse and chaos.

Alicia Alegre

Xavi Bou

Manu Algueró
Barcelona, 1976

With echoes of American abstract expressionism, Manu Algueró's immense canvases draw us in with their interplay of matter, colour and artist’s gesture in search of visual impact. The large amount of paint used to create multiple textures, shades and reliefs is applied with a spontaneity that is often subsequently scrutinised and modified.  Besides their technical vigour, his works also show the artist's interest in the study of the human face, which is suggested by his highly dramatic unfinished figures.
