Topic guide "Joaquim Folch i Torres"
“Like Noah in the Ark, in January 1937, during our war, we put the best of our artistic heritage furniture in big lorries; the best example of each type, and we took them to Paris”.

Historian, museologist and art critic, Joaquim Folch i Torres (1886-1963) played a notable role in rescuing and safeguarding the artistic heritage, as well as in the acquisition of works for the art collections of Catalonia.
In 2013, among the events held in homage to the 50th anniversary of his death, the MNAC Library would be renamed the Joaquim Folch i Torres Library. We have produced this thematic guide to remember the person and his commitment towards Catalan art and culture.
