The museum of the famous portraitist and figurative painter from Malaga exhibits more than a hundred works by the artist
The Sando Foundation has renewed its partnership with the foundation that exhibits, disseminates and promotes the work of the famous painter from Malaga, Félix Revello de Toro. The agreement aims to promote the conservation and knowledge of the legacy of the famous portrait and figurative artist.
The agreement was signed by the Mayor of Malaga, Francisco de la Torre Prados, in his capacity as vice-president of the Félix Revello de Toro Foundation, and the chair of the Sando Foundation, José Luis Sánchez Domínguez. In this case, this commitment was first made in 2011 and has been renewed annually.
The Revello de Toro Museum is an exhibition space that permanently exhibits the works that the famous painter Félix Revello de Toro from Malaga has given to his native city. Of the one hundred and forty-two works on public display, one hundred and thirteen, including oil paintings, sketches and drawings, form the museum’s permanent collection.
Periodically, the Revello de Toro Museum programmes temporary exhibitions. The exhibition Las Fiestas de Málaga can currently be visited. This collection brings together the posters that the painter immortalised for events such as Fair Posters, Carnival Posters or Exaltation of the Mantilla, among others.
The museum is located in the house-workshop of the Baroque sculptor Pedro de Mena, which has been recovered and is one of the few domestic buildings that remain in Malaga from that period.
Defending cultural heritage
Committed daily to the needs of society, talent and culture, the Sando Foundation promotes the defence of historical and artistic heritage as part of its objectives. In line with this premise, it actively collaborates with other entities that aim to raise awareness in society through good practices, such as the Malaga Foundation, a founding patron.
