Palau March Museum, Palma de Mallorca

Palau March Museum, Palma de Mallorca

Bartolome March fell a little further from the paternal tree. Like his father, Juan March, he was successful in business and he collected art but he eschewed smuggling and war profiteering. He started collecting art, books and manuscripts. Soon he had one of the foremost twentieth century art collections, now housed in the Palau March Museum.

The museum collection holds Baroque, Impressionist, Modern and Painterly Realist art. Works by Murillo, Goya, Velasquez, Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, Miro, Kandinsky, Rothko, Klein and yes, Salvador Dali, are included. There are sculptures by Chillida, Moore and Rodin. On display are wooden icons and a fabulous Neopolitan nativity scene.

The Palau March museum with the Bartolome March Foundation's collection is located in Palau March Palace in the heart of Palma de Mallorca. The family palace is an isle of serenity and a refuge from the hustle and bustle of Palma. There is a sweeping view of the harbor from the roof. One can tarry here, in the inviting cafe on the ground floor.
