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 retrospective complements the exhibition “Pierre Daura (1896-1976): Picturing Attachments,” which focuses on Daura’s family portraits. This exhibition provides context for Daura’s portraits and explores the other works that he created over his long artistic career.
