Biblioteca del MAMT


The library of the Museum of Modern Art of the Diputació of Tarragona houses over 15.000 titles and provides a service to art experts and students.

Since its foundation it has specialised in the field of Catalan Arts of the XIX and XX th. centuries. It also accounts for a significant number of Fine Arts magazines, both from the present times and from the last years of the XIX th. Century and early XX th. The Museum of Modern Arts, in close connection with today’s artistic feelings, has created a Documentary Fund, mostly derivating from the Plastic Arts that have been promoted by the Diputació of Tarragona.

  • Hours: Tuesday to Friday 9 am to 14.30 pm

Photographic archives

The first set of pictures to be included in the archives was that made on behalf of the Diputació of Tarragona in 1929 by the photographers Pere Català i Pic and Hermenegild Vallvé i Vilallonga, for the International Exposition of Barcelona of that year, and displayed in the “Spanish Monuments” section. Later on, other sets were recovered, that had been presented to the various contests promoted by the Diputació of Tarragona in the sixties and seventies. The archives grew steadily from that moment on, both through purchase and donations. In 1989, a collection of seventeen daguerrotypes and three hundred glass plates were included as deposits .

Sale of photographic reproductions

The Museum offers a sale and rental service for the photographs of its collections, for study, research and publication purposes, at all times ensuring the lawful use of these images, in accordance with copyright law.
