Banco Santander Collection
The Colección Banco Santander contains more than 1,000 works, including pieces by master painters and sculptors.
Santander Art Gallery
The Sala de Arte Santander, located at the Grupo Santander City in Boadilla del Monte (Madrid), was purpose-built to house a selection of the main works from the bank’s art collection.
Fundación Banco Santander views art as a social and educational tool with an important mediating function. With this in mind, the foundation organises exhibitions to disseminate the bank’s art collection.
At Fundación Banco Santander we are aware that, in order to contribute to contemporary art it is necessary to encourage its teaching and promote a pedagogical system where creativity and aesthetic experience gain strength.
Supporting Artistic Production
At Fundación Banco Santander we carry out different initiatives aimed at promoting artistic production and supporting contemporary creators, the basis of the art sector and the foundation of our future artistic heritage.
The foundation supports First Collectors, a programme managed by the Arte Global consultancy firm that offers free advice to visitors to ARCOmadrid, the contemporary art fair, who wish to start their own art collections.
