Francisco Fernández del Riego collection
Paintings, sculptures, engravings and letters donated by this great Galician theorist.
Vigo's best 20th-century art.
Francisco Fernández del Riego was an extremely influential 20th-cenutry intellectual who dedicated his life to Galician culture. He sponsored, for example, the Galaxia publishing house, which was highly controversial during the Franco years as it only published work in Galician. In 1995, he donated his artistic and bibliographical collections to Vigo, the city where he lived and with which he had a very special bond. The collection includes over 20,000 books and the correspondence he maintained with famous intellectuals during the interwar period, in addition to 254 works by distinguished artists such as Granell, Minguillón and Díaz Pardo. It also includes photographs and some of his personal belongings.
