Col·lecció de pintures i escultures dels artistes catalans

Collections and research

Art collection

At the beginning of the 1920s, Pau Casals established his habitual residence in Catalonia. During this period he built up his collection of paintings and sculptures by the most renowned Catalan artists from the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th. Advised by gallery owners and art critics, Pau Casals chose the works personally after seeing them at exhibitions held by Barcelona's foremost galleries. The artists of Sala Parés, which was the gallery directed by Joan Anton Maragall, and those who belonged to the critic Joan Merli's organization became his principal sources of art. Most of the works were acquired for the house at Sant Salvador. The coherence of the ensemble makes the Vil·la Casals collection an excellent sample of Catalan realist art. The Artistic fonds is kept at the Pau Casals Museum in Sant Salvador, El Vendrell.
