The Félix Cañada Art Gallery, dependent on the Gómez-Pardo Foundation and located in the Chamberí district, provides a selection of works from an ample range of schools of art and other displays such as sculpture, porcelain, furniture and musical instruments.
Started in 2009 as part of a complementary humanistic education project for students at the Mining School in Madrid, it currently exhibits almost fifty pictures and six sculptures. Within its selection of paintings, we find important works by French Impressionists and outstanding Spanish landscape artists from the 20th century and beginnings of the 20th, such as Joaquín Mir or Modesto Urgell, besides other works by Antonio Gisbert and María Blanchard amongst others.
The sculptures currently on display date from between the 16th and 20th centuries, and are made in diverse materials (wood, terracotta, bronze, etc.). We find pieces by Sir Thomas Lawrence, Juan de Arellano, Frans Franken and Gutiérrez de la Vega, along with others that are very close to other great established artists on different subject matters (religion, traditions, portraits, landscapes and still life).
Its collection of over two hundred polychrome wood carvings from the circles of such magnificent sculptors as Pedro de Mena and Alonso de Berruguete also stand out. Finally, the gallery will be showing its extraordinary collection of art nouveau and art déco at some time in the future, along with some Meissen porcelain.
