Route in the Abelló Museum in Mollet del Vallés

The Abelló Museum is located in a modernist building. Inaugurated on March 29, 1999, the museum houses a part of the collection that the Molleta painter Joan Abelló gave to the city. The Abelló Foundation's art fund is made up of nearly 10,000 works.

The collections of Catalan painting and sculpture from 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.

Regarding the pictorial collections, 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 a wide collection of sculptures by Manolo Hugué, Lluís Montané, Mariano Benlliure, J. Clarà, Labrador, Rebull and Navarro.

Exhibitions

r223_abello The Abelló Museum hosts two permanent exhibitions: one dedicated to the Foundation's art fund, entitled "Modern art in the Abelló collection, 19th and 20th centuries"; and the other on the work of the painter from Mollete, "Abelló, una cata". On the ground and lower floors there are two rooms where temporary exhibitions are exhibited and outside the facility, we find the Showcase, 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 on Lluís Duran Street, where Joan Abelló was born. It is linked to the neighboring houses that the painter bought throughout his life to put the works of art and objects that he acquired as a collector. One of the annexed houses is the house where the politician and illustrious Molletano Jordi Solé Tura was born, considered one of the fathers of the Spanish Constitution.

The House of the Painter is the house 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 doorway that belonged to the Los Angeles convent in Barcelona leads us to the lobby, where a large photograph of Abelló welcomes us.

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