The Reina Sofía National Art Centre is expanding thanks to Soledad Lorenzo, a Spanish gallery owner with a high international cachet. The Museum will soon receive an important deposit of 380 pieces collected by Soledad Lorenzo during her career in the art gallery. This loan implies the incorporation into the museum's collection of artists and periods of art which were previously underrepresented.

The Reina Sofía Museum will receive 385 works by 90 artists –mainly Spanish– from the collection conserved by Soledad Lorenzo throughout her career. This is an important deposit, both due to the number and quality of the pieces and to the renown of the artists. The list includes names as significant as Juan Uslé, Pablo Palazuelo, Miquel Barceló, Pérez Villalta, David Salle, Soledad Sevilla, Tàpies and Luis Gordillo. Although there is a predominance of painting, there are also other works in all formats: sculpture, photography, audiovisual, graphic works, installations…

With the inclusion of this series, the museum's collection will be reinforced in several categories. For example, it will now have a significant representation of 21st-century schools, whose presence so far was limited. It also means the entry of artists like Uslé, Eric Fischl and Philip Frölich, of whose work the museum previously had few examples. The collections of works by other artists such as Gordillo and Txomin Badiola will also be considerably reinforced. The loan has a duration of five years which can be extended, with the promise of a legacy by the gallery owner.
