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.


Jaume Genovart

Jordi Gich
Palafrugell, Girona, 1975

Regina Giménez
Barcelona, 1966

Painter and graphic artist with poetic and metaphoric leanings.  Regina Giménez builds a world halfway between the real and the imaginary with globes, boats and lighthouses; objects evoking solitude and which invite us on an introspective journey over the horizon to unknown shores.  The artist fashions authentic showcases divorced from their intrinsic post-industrial and consumerist everyday use.  Collages combining photographic discipline with a more hand-crafted approach and which, via a fusion of nature and the urban world, converge in architectures of almost abstract landscapes.

Maria Girona
Barcelona, 1923 - 2015

Maria Girona grew up in a culturally-rich family environment. She trained at the Acadèmia Tàrrega, where she met other painters of her generation and with whom she founded the Els Vuit group, one of the first artists’ groups seeking an artistic renewal in Catalonia.

Her artwork, drawing on Matisse’s painting and pre-civil war Noucentist Catalan Mediterraneanism, rejected the artifice and virtuosity of the painting that was so prevalent in the early years of the Francoist dictatorship, but rather sought modernity, through her use of colour and essentiality. Throughout her life, she was loyal to her artistic principles, neither tempted by fads nor effectivism, and she focused on a very personal figuration, with the exception of a series of collages of high plastic interest which she made during the sixties. Along with her husband, Albert Ràfols Casamada, she was involved in the most innovative initiatives of the time and she took part in the process of creating the EINA Design School.
