Let’s save the violinist

The Violinist by Pablo Gargallo was in poor condition. The acceleration of its internal corrosion, caused by the incompatibility of the materials it is made from, set alarm bells ringing in 2010.

April 2016 the Amics launched the micro-patronage campaign “Salvem el violinista” (Let’s save the violinist!) —the third in our history— to get collected 46.000 € necessary to restore the iconic sculpture by Gargallo The Violinist.

The campaign lasted three months and had an exceptional response: a total of 255 patrons made contributions ranging from 10 € to 7.000 €.

Once the restoration was completed, directed by the Department of Preventive Conservation and Restoration of the Museu Nacional, this exceptional work shone again in the rooms of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya in 2020.

We would like to thank in a special way the support and collaboration of the Omedes family in the recovery of the memory of the master Francesc Costa, the violinist and friend of Pau Gargallo who inspired the sculpture.

And also to all those who participated and wanted to remain anonymous.

Thank you!
