The exhibition Picasso, Braque, Gris, Blanchard, Miró y Dalí. Grandes Figuras de la Vanguardia will showcase eight works from the Colección Masaveu and the Colección Pedro Masaveu. All these works were collected by the Masaveu family, a Catalan dynasty of entrepreneurs and philanthropists who settled in Asturias in 1840. The exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias, the Fundación María Cristina Masaveu Peterson and the Corporación Masaveu. It has been curated by Alfonso Palacio, the director of the Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias. A 17-page leaflet guide to the exhibition can be downloaded by clicking here.
