The Foundation María Cristina Masaveu Peterson, which carries on the Masaveu family’s tradition of collecting and patronage, has its own art collection. These holdings, focused in particular on contemporary art, include pieces by acclaimed artists as well as works by up-and-coming creators.
The Collection, which is added to every year, stems from the FMCMP’s wish to support current Spanish art. It has taken shape through purchases and the incorporation of pieces resulting from patronage projects, in which prestigious artists are granted absolute freedom to create unique works that become part of the holdings.
The FMCMP building in Madrid exhibits pieces from the Collection for visitors to discover as they walk around. Two of them, resulting from the patronage scheme, have been designed specifically for this space.
