The Foundation

The Foundation was founded in October 2002 as an initiative of Vicenta Benedito, niece and adopted daughter of the painter. Its main purpose is to ensure the exhibition, dissemination and study of the painter’s work. The works on display offer a comprehensive overview of Manuel Benedito’s painting and an insight into his collaboration with other people and institutions during his lifetime.

The collection is located on the site of Manuel Benedito’s former home-studio where he lived and worked from 1927 until his death.
