Route in the Abelló Museum of Mollet del Vallés

The Abelló Museum is housed in a modernist building. Opened on March 29, 1999, the museum houses a part of the collection that the painter from Molleta, Joan Abelló, gave to the city. The art collection of the Abelló Foundation consists of nearly 10,000 works.

The collections of Catalan painting and sculpture of the 19th and 20th centuries, the Romanesque and Baroque carvings, as well as the collections of Asian art, black art, clothing, bullfighting, furniture, porcelain, glass and an important musical and documentary collection stand out.

As for the pictorial backgrounds, we find, apart from Abelló's work, works by Picasso, Dalí, Miró, Tàpies, Brossa, Sorolla, Mir, Nonell, Casas, Gimeno, Juan Gris, Clavé, Cuixart, Boguerau, Millet, Pellicer or Fortuny. We also have an extensive collection of sculptures by Manolo Hugué, Lluís Montané, Mariano Benlliure, J. Clarà, Labrador, Rebull and Navarro.

Exhibitions

The Abelló Museum hosts two permanent exhibitions: one devoted to the Foundation's art collection, entitled "Modern Art in the Abelló Collection, 19th and 20th centuries"; and the other on the work of the painter from Molle, "Abelló, a tasting". In the lower and lower floors there are two rooms where temporary exhibitions are exhibited and on the outside of the equipment, we find the Escaparate, a space for the production and dissemination of the visual arts.

The Museum lobby also hosts small temporary exhibitions and a space where the work of local artists is displayed.

The House of the Painter

Located next to the Museum, it is an old house in the street of Lluís Duran, where Joan Abelló was born . It is linked to the neighboring houses that the painter was buying throughout his life to put the works of art and objects that he acquired as a collector. One of the houses annexed is the house where the illustrious politician and illustrious Jordi Solé Tura was born, considered one of the fathers of the Spanish Constitution.

r223_abello The House of the Painter is the home of a collector: rooms, stairs, ground floor, basement, floors... A labyrinth where the visitor discovers the complex, interesting and diverse collection of the artist. A cover that belonged to the convent of the Angels of Barcelona leads us to the lobby, where a large photograph of Abelló welcomes us.

From there, the visitor is immersed in the universe of Abelló. At the moment, it is still pending to musealizar a good part of the old personal dependencies of Abelló, overflowing with works of art and pieces of the collection. This space is called the Artist's Workshop and is closed to the public. Guided tours from Thursday to Sunday.
