The Pierre Daura Center was established at the Georgia Museum of Art in 2002 with a gift from Martha Randolph Daura in honor of her father and contains a collection of paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures by the Catalan-American artist Pierre Daura (1896–1976). In addition to more than 600 works of art, the gift included the artist’s archive, with important material relevant to modern art from the 1920s through the 1960s and an endowment to support both the center and a Pierre Daura Curator of European Art.
This exhibition is the first one devoted to the many works that the Catalan-American painter Pierre Daura created throughout his career in response to his personal relationships.

Holbrook's vision of permanently exhibiting treasures from the museum's collection is, at last, realized.
