Graphic Work Museum
ANTONIO PÉREZ FOUNDATION – SAN CLEMENTE – CUENCA (SPAIN)
The Graphic Work Museum was created in 2006 thanks to Antonio Pérez’s penchant for collecting and to a collaboration agreement between the County Council of Cuenca, the Antonio Pérez Foundation of Cuenca and the City Council of San Clemente. The museum provides extensive coverage of the most outstanding movements and artists from the mid-20th century until the present day.
In February 2006, a new contemporary art centre was opened, making San Clemente one of the few sites in Spain with a museum dedicated entirely to engraving. It is a space intended for lovers of graphic techniques, since it represents all engraving techniques, ranging from the most traditional ones, such as etching or xylography, through to the more modern or experimental techniques. Moreover, works by the most significant artists who emerged as of the 1950s are on show, alongside the work of other younger artists who caught Antonio Pérez’s attention.
