Palau Antiguitats opened its doors more than 33 years ago, in 1986, when Lola Palau, a collector, became an antique dealer.
Located at the bottom of the pedestrian Gràcia street in Barcelona, the gallery specializes in the purchase and sale of antiques.
Nearly two decades ago, the art historian Albert Martí Palau, son of Lola, took over the gallery and continued his passion for the world of antiques, old artworks and, above all, paper (ancient engravings and drawings).
Our two areas of interest are :
– Old engravings and drawings
In 2007 we opened our Graphic Arts Studio, a setting where old prints and drawings are the main protagonists. It stands for an educational space where different techniques, states and editions can be easily compared; visitors might as well appreciate different types of paper and supports, or to enjoy nuances of a fine engraving. Every year we organise a number of different types of art exhibitions, where people can acquire works at any price.
In addition, we offer the possibility of making appraisals for private and public collections.
