Eugenio Granell Foundation of Santiago de Compostela
The Eugenio Granell Foundation began in 1995. The foundation was based on the life and works of this artist from A Coruña who spent his childhood in Santiago de Compostela. The foundation aims at studying the works of Granell (1912-2001) and surrealism among many other related artistic trends.
Located at the Pazo de Bendaña, an eighteenth century building in the center of town in the Plaza del Toral, it is considered one of the most beautiful mansions of Compostela.
The Foundation and Museum is divided into several collections.
The Eugenio Granell Collection, consists of his works, presented in a way that visitors can appreciate his career development through the various oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, ready-mades, photographs, sculptures and so on.
The Surreal Collection, comprises works by other artists, some of whom were personal friends of Granell: Duchamp, Miro, Lam, Ernst, Abela, Copley, Cesariny among others.
The Ethnic Collection, are works that were collected by Granell throughout his life: objects such as toys or masks from the most diverse parts of the world. These pieces show the typical interest that surrealists have in primitive cultures and essential manifestations of human beings that marked this artistic movement.
The funds will supplement the museum's collection with Philip West, donated by the English artist based in Zaragoza along with some 100 books and papers on Surrealism.
