Marçaginé-Lula Pérez Sculpture Museum

This is a museum dedicated to local sculptor Marçel·lí Giné, known as Marçà-Giné (1918-2006), and his wife Lula Pérez (1924-2004). This artistic couple created a sculptural style that was beautifully executed but at the same time disquieting, always with a critical eye to the future of the world and of the land. Two artists who managed to create their own world view. 

The museum also exhibits paintings by Josep Sancho Piqué (1872-1959) from Marçà, as well as by other local artists such as Amat Pellejà, Núria Estapé and Joaquim Santaló.

The third floor also houses an exhibition of archaeological remains found in the area.

Opening Hours:

Sunday and Public Holidays: 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Monday to Saturday: by appointment only, tel. (+34) 663 196 486

Marçà-Giné (1918-2006)

When he started studying sculpture at the Barcelona school of fine arts, Marçà-Giné was 29 years old. His teacher was Lluís Oslé, a sculptor keen on naturalism, with an irreproachable technique, a solid body of work and a long career. After his courses in sculpture, Marçà-Giné took pottery courses at the Escola Industrial, a school of arts and crafts in Barcelona.

From 1948 he was a regular entrant in competitions.

In 1951 the jury of the provincial authority's Julio Antonio prize (which included the "Destino" art critic Joan Cortés and the sculptor Lluís Saumelles) awarded him for the stone carving "Cap de nen" [Child's Head].

In 1952 and 1953 he won awards at the National Exhibition of Universal Art in Madrid.

In 1953 he also won third prize in the provincial competition at the Centre de Lectura in Reus, with the work "Segadora" (Reaper). In 1955 he had three works in the 3rd Hispano American Biennial.

During his training, Marçà-Giné worked hard on two disciplines of sculpture: anatomy and working with terracotta; in both he displays a confident, clear, agile language. Working with terracotta (quick and cheap in comparison with hard materials) allowed him to be prolific, and above all made him independent of anybody else, one of his most distinctive, surprising and thought-provoking traits. To these gifts he added that of the observer of his raw material: of the random combinations and qualities he took up. The pieces (usually in small format) he called "finds" are occurrences that display acuteness and improvisation in equal measure.


Josep Sancho Piqué (1872-1959)

At the age of seventeen he enrolled in the Barcelona school of fine arts. He was a fellow student of Joaquim Mir and Isidre Nonell. He joined Lluís Graner's studio. In 1896 he exhibited at the Sala Parés, and in successive years took part in different national exhibitions in the same city.

He opened a drawing school in Tarragona in 1915. From 1936 to 1939 he spent his time on a series of drawings alluding to the war. He cultivated anecdotal subjects and portraiture. His compositions are well-known, always conventional in style, largely sketches, pastels and charcoals.
