HISTORY

 

The Fundació was created in 1993 by both artists, Francesc Fornells-Pla and Conxa Sisquella, and was constituted as a trust to their legacy. The Fundació holds more than 5000 works of art as well as a great number of documents, photos and objects, which represent a valuable testimony of the life and career of both artists.

The Fundació is based in La Garriga, in the house where the couple had their atelier and where they spent long periods of time working on their art. Therefore, the Fundació is made up of two ateliers, the place of residence and the garden with Fornells-Pla’s mobile sculptures.
