Masterful Art Nouveau glass by Emile Gallé and René Lalique are the artistic highlights, but the 1,500-plus piece collection of the Manuel Ramos Andrade Foundation also embraces jewelry, paintings, furniture, and marble and bronze figurines. All the works date from the late 1880s through the 1930s, and while some are mainstream Art Nouveau or Art Deco, others are Spanish outliers of the two styles. Many visitors are surprised to also find a collection of more than 400 porcelain dolls. Manuel Ramos Andrade was a major doll collector, and the pieces represent the top European manufacturers.
