Mayoral is an art gallery specialized in modern and postwar art founded in Barcelona in 1989.
The gallery’s exhibition programme focuses on the founders of the Dau al Set artistic movement, such as Antoni Tàpies, Joan Brossa and Modest Cuixart, as well as on other great Spanish post-war artists: Eduardo Chillida, Manolo Millares, Antonio Saura, José Guerrero, Fernando Zóbel, Rafael Canogar and Luis Feito. At the same time, the gallery also exhibits the work of some of the great avant-garde masters of the twentieth century: Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Alexander Calder and Marc Chagall.
The gallery carries out projects that are rigorously curated and which are the result of a thorough research process. Moreover, it works in collaboration with the families of the artists, as well as with foundations and other institutions whose aim is to preserve and promote the different artists’ legacy. Likewise, Mayoral enjoys the support and confidence of museums and collectors, both private and institutional.
Mayoral has presented exhibitions such as “Miró’s Studio” (London – New York), which reproduced the atelier where Catalan painter Joan Miró worked in Palma de Mallorca and showed elements linked to his sources of inspiration, his creative process and the traditions of his native land. The gallery has recently organized the two retrospective exhibitions: “Millares. Building bridges, not walls” and “Saura. Tragedy & Creation”, which reviewed the creative process of both artists and analized how the message of their work still questions us today.
Masterpiece's exhibitors span all eras and disciplines and include many of the world's most distinguished art dealerships. Scrupulous vetting and thoughtful juxtaposition allow one to encounter beautiful works of art, have one's eyes opened to the unfamiliar, and buy with confidence.
