The Fran Daurel private collection focuses mainly on Catalan art, comprising works by major artists such as Dalí, Guinovart, Ràfols-Casamada, Cuixart, Tàpies, Barceló, Plensa, Millares and Picasso.
The latest addition to the Fundació Fran Daurel is the Sculpture Garden, which is reached through the Montblanc gate. 3,500 m2 of land has been reclaimed so that visitors can enjoy this permanent open-air sculpture collection. New works have been added to the garden which now comprises a green area featuring 27 sculptures by 20 contemporary artists, forming a landscape in which the figurative and abstract coexist, forming a wide range of shapes and colours which show us contemporary art from a different slant. The Foundation also stages a wide range of works of art and temporary exhibitions by renowned artists.
The galleries of the Fundació Fran Daurel opened in 2001 in the Poble Espanyol, on Montjuïc Hill in Barcelona.
