The Salvat Collection

The Peris family, owners of Salvat Laboratories, are committed to contemporary art. This led to their purchasing a work in 1994 that would, in time, become the first in the Salvat Collection of contemporary art.

A new large-format work is acquired for the Collection every year. The work must have been painted by a Spanish artist that very same year. Over the years, the collection has become a clear representation of the most interesting Spanish artistic creations of recent decades.

In order to bring contemporary art closer to collaborators and friends, the work chosen for each year is reproduced on the Christmas card the company sends out around the world.
