The Kairoi Art Collection

The Kairoi Art Collection is a series of Majorcan paintings, mainly figurative, formed by the works of art of both, local and foreign artists, some of whom are internationally renowned, that produced works of art throughout the 20th century, leaving us their immense artistic legacy.  The collection, currently formed by 125 works of art, was born during the social and economical crisis; the so-called Great Recession that began in 2008.The first painting to form part of this collection was small pictorial legacy by Gaspar Sabater Rosselló (Esporles, Majorca 1927-2015), and is gradually being updated though the acquisition of other works of art.

         THE KAIROI ART COLLECTION intends to be a living reality open to the public. It is fundamentally a reality in construction and full development, which does not exclusively and exhaustively focus on the large number of artists from both the 19th and 20th centuries, but rather, wishes to gradually include other works of art, so as to grow in size and create a collection that can be representative of the painting created in the Balearic Islands during the last two centuries.

The collection, in the first place, wants to become a tribute to all those people that could not choose the life they wished to live, thus, becoming victims in the hands of the personal, social and economic circumstances that they had to endure and therefore, found themselves forced to live a life that they had not elected.

In the second place, the collection also wishes to be a tribute to the beauty of the islands, that has been immortalised through the testimony of the numerous artists, who during the 19th and 20th centuries, ended up living on the islands attracted to the beautiful landscapes and encountered three essential elements: a beautiful exuberant nature, social hospitality and the most important thing, artistic freedom. Thanks to all this, an enormous artistic heritage was left to us. A real treasure that we have the responsibility and moral duty to safeguard, promote and transmit to future generations.
