One day, One photo
Let us look after you, be inspired
We invite you to discover the art hidden in our collections. Every day we select a photograph, a painting or a drawing for you to discover new worlds. We are sharing an idea, an inspiration. We are opening a window to the world of art.

Regarding New York
Berenice Abbott captured the spirit of New York, transforming it at will. In her work Canyon she builds an unprecedented landscape in the city, a canyon formed by steep walls with hardly any vegetation.

The Brown Sisters
When looking at the series by the photographer Nicholas Nixon we feel the unavoidable passing of time, we perceive the vulnerability of the human being and we share a common history. We invite you to enter a private scene that has been repeated every year since 1974.
Portraits are the main figures of our collections. The exhibition Portraits reflected the complexity and richness of this genre in the works of the great photographers of the 20th century. You can watch it on this video.
