Mayoral is an art gallery specialized in modern and postwar art founded in Barcelona in 1989.

Our projects are rigorously curated and count with the collaboration of leading international specialists, public and private institutions, and the families of the artists.

The exhibitions are the result of an exhaustive process of research and documentation.  Mayoral aims to preserve the artists’ legacies, to shine a spotlight on artists that have been overshadowed and to establish a dialogue between Modern and Post-War Art and the contemporaneity.

Mayoral brought to life revolutionary projects such as Miró’s Studio (London – Barcelona 2016) which captured the essence of the artist’s studio in Mallorca, putting on stage Miró’s different elements linked to his sources of inspiration, his creative process and the tradition of his native land.  Recently, the gallery organized the ambitious retrospective Millares, Building Bridges, Not Walls (Barcelona, 2017), which examines Millares’ creative process and how its message interpellates the present times.

Mayoral organized numerous solo and group exhibitions with prominent 20th Century artists such as Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, René Magritte and Marc Chagall.

From the Post-War art movement Mayoral works with the Catalan group of Dau al Set  formed by Antoni Tàpies, Modest Cuixart, Joan Brossa, Joan Ponç as well as with Manolo Millares, Antonio Saura, Eduardo Chillida, Luis Feito and Fernando Zóbel.
