Spanish-born Antonio Pérez (b. 1934) has divided much of his life between Cuenca and Paris, but fortunately he chose Cuenca as the site of his foundation. He is usually described as a collector, editor, and artist, and we also suspect that he has a profound sense of humor. His own works fall into the category of found art and often employ common objects to make funny and surprising commentary. For example, he titled three bells without their clappers Castrati. Large, airy galleries carved out of a former convent of the Barefoot Carmelites display Peréz’s work as well as highlights of his collection of Spanish artists (many of whom are also featured in the Saura foundation and the abstract art museum, both below) and international artists including Andy Warhol. Not surprisingly, Pérez is a big fan of pop art. Two even more extensive collections—one of found objects, the other of graphic art—belong to the Fundación Antonio Pérez but are displayed in a Renaissance palace in the town of San Clemente, 109km (68 miles) south of Cuenca. Objects from each sometimes show up in Cuenca in temporary exhibitions.
