Antonio Pérez Foundation Museum of Cuenca!!

I have several posts on sentimental Cuenca in my blog. This one is an older post that I like to break down into each individual museum with a post of its own rather than one all post as before. I feel that on one of my favorite cities in Spain is worth it to tell you about their museums we like in a bit more details on each. So, therefore, here are my version of the Antonio Pérez Foundation Museum of Cuenca, in Castilla La Mancha autonomous community! Hope you enjoy them as I.

Museo Fundación Antonio Pérez , began its history in 1998 located in the former Convent of the Barefooted Carmels, it houses the particular collection of contemporary works of art by the artist Antonio Pérez. The important art collection of Antonio Pérez composed of paintings by painters as important as Saura, Millares, Feito or Gordillo. A museum whose initial collection of painting, sculpture, photography, graphic work and artist’s books has increased dramatically during the  years the museum has been in operation.
