The artist

Teresa Vallmajó (Banyoles, 1944) is one of the few women artists of her generation to remain active as a professional. Sixty years of creating pictures which began when she was very young, on the floor of her parents butcher's shop, drawing on a blackboard which they had ordered from the carpenter.

The place

Throughout Teresa’s life, her studio and art gallery have alternated between domesticity and creativity, always close to the household where she developed a world of her own. In the heart of the historic Barri Vell quarter, in a late 19th century building, the new Fons d’Art Teresa Vallmajó opens its doors to reveal the 21st century work of this artist from Banyoles, with a private Library which can be consulted by the general public, where the medieval art of Cluny stands side by side with Odilon Redon’s vast decorative panels.

A PARADISE, by Teresa Vallmajó

"If a man coud pass through Paradise in a dream, and have a flower presented to him as a pledge that his soul had really been there, and if he found that flower in his hand when he awoke awoke – Aye! And what then?"

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
