Fundación Díaz Caneja

Díaz Caneja Foundation

Museum of Contemporary Art that houses a large part of the work of the painter Díaz-Caneja

Founded in 1991 at will of the painter based on the funds donated by his widow, Isabel Fernández Almansa, the Museum exhibits much of the work of the palentino Juan Manuel Díaz-Caneja. One of the rooms of the center holds the permanent exhibition of the palentino creator, whose work reflects his personal rereading and interpretation of the Castilian landscape under the influence of the avant-garde that defined the early 20th century. The second room contains several proposals and temporary exhibitions of photography or fine arts.
