The antonio saura foundation archives is the keeper of Antonio Saura’s archives in their entirety.
The archives comprise a collection of photographic portraits, a collection of photographs of the works, the artist’s private correspondence with painter and writer friends, his correspondence with dealers, publishers or museums, the annotated manuscripts and typescripts of his writings, numerous studio notebooks, documents relating to exhibitions, and a significant corpus of images collected and catalogued by Saura according to the origins of the genres and themes that he adopted and painted in the course of his career. This collection is regularly supplemented by new photographic documents and other documents or information concerning his work.
The archives are an inexhaustible source for discovering and understanding Saura’s work and thought. They form the basis for the published catalogue raisonné of printed work, as well as the catalogue raisonné of painted work and the catalogue raisonné of works on paper and other supports, both of which are currently in progress.
This body of material is available to researchers and museum curators. Requests to consult the archives must be submitted in writing to the antonio saura foundation archives along with a brief description of the purpose of the research.
