“Modern” at this museum is more a statement of era than style, as the paintings ignore all the avant-garde movements of the 20th century. It was founded by the donation of several sculptures by Julio Antonio that had been in the possession of his family. Additional bequests have expanded the collection, which includes many more Catalan artists, especially the painter Josep Sancho i Piqué and sculptors Santiago Costa i Vaqué and Salvador Martorell i Ollé. Along the way, curators also acquired an extensive collection of late 20th-century Catalan photography.
