The exhibition 1000 years of Catalan ceramics. Celebrating 40 years of the Asociació Catalana de Ceràmica, it has been organized by the Fundació Mascort and the Asociació Catalana de Ceràmica to commemorate the 40th anniversary of this entity (1980-2020).
Almost 300 pieces of china and pottery dating from the 10th to the 20th century have been collected, and which belong to various museums, foundations and private collections.
It is one of the most important exhibitions of Catalan ceramics that has ever been organized and a unique opportunity to see together some of the most outstanding productions.
This exhibition is the first to feature a hundred or so plates from two of the most important works published by Lynx Edicions: the Handbook of the Birds of the World, the first treatise in the history of science to study and include illustrations of all the bird species around the globe, and the Handbook of the Mammals of the World, which gives the very latest and most accurate information about all the mammals on the Earth.
José María Mascort. The Catalina Sastre Legacy presents the gift of the painter’s works by Mrs Sastre to the Mascort Foundation. At the exhibition, which contains more than a hundred paintings, we shall be able to gaze at the landscapes of the Empordà plain, the seascapes and a few portraits.
Private Lives. Shared Histories. The Photographic Archive of the Mascort Family (1860-1960) gives the public an opportunity to view part of this family photographic collection, which covers an extensive geographical area and timespan and features local and international photographers. The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue make it possible to chart important aspects of the history of photography and highlight the importance of family holdings as a source of knowledge on the history, customs and values of society in different eras.
