Fundación Mapfre

World Class Temporary Art Exhibits

Casa Garriga Nogués

Until mid 2015 charming Modernista Casa Garriga i Nogués (1899-1901, designed by Enric Sagnier, housed the excellent collection of medieval art, ceramics, Modernista drawing and painting, and 20th-century art collected by Barcelona businessman and Formula 1 driver rancisco 'Paco' Godia (1921–90), one of the last 'gentleman' drivers before the sport became professional. Then his daughter running the Godia Foundation got caught evading taxes...

The exhibition space has since been taken over the Madrid-based insurance giant Mapfre, and used as a venue for hosting major modern art exhibits; the first, dedicated to colour, featured works by Van Gogh, Gaugin, Bonnard and Co, loaned by the Musée d'Orsay and Orangerie in Paris.
