Collection[edit]

The museum's collection is divided in two groups: the modern fund which was collected mostly by Olga and Rufino Tamayo, and a contemporary fund that was created in the 1990s and that has been expanded continuously thanks to the donations of artists that have exhibited in the museum and other commissioned artworks.

The modern collection is striking for the list of major artists represented in it: Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Francis Bacon, Jean Dubuffet, Fernand Léger, Wifredo Lam, Pierre Soulages, Frank Auerbach, Alexander Calder, Eduardo Chillida, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Josep Guinovart, Barbara Hepworth, Hans Hartung, Willem de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, René Magritte, Manolo Millares, Robert Motherwell, Georgia O´Keeffe, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Mark Rothko, Antoni Tàpies, Joaquín Torres García, Victor Vasarely, Andy Warhol, among others.[1]
