The Mapfre Foundation was founded in 1988 with two offices in Madrid. Its first space in Barcelona opened in 2015 at the emblematic Casa Garriga-Nogues. From the archives of the Foundation, which brings together works of art from the late-19th to mid-20th century, highlights include the collection of works on paper and photography. The hall focuses on featuring important content of Catalan origin. Exhibitions often rotate, but most are centered around the early years of pictorial modernity (1850-1950) and on the great masters of photography. That said, they often feature collections from the Romanesque, Gothic and Modernista periods.
