A unique artistic concept: Fundación Jakober
Facing the Mediterranean Sea, the Fundación Jakober offers an exceptional playground of discovery for children and their families in an encounter with art.
The museum encompasses three areas:
• A garden inhabited by strange stone sculptures of animals representing renowned masterpieces that have been enlarged, taking visitors on a journey into a world as astonishing as that of Alice in Wonderland;
• An extraordinary collection of portraits of children painted between the 16th and 19th centuries, which offers surprising historical details such as the dresses worn by young boys until adolescence;
• A modern showcase for treasures of contemporary art, bringing visitors face to face with the major issues raised by current artistic creation.
These three distinct universes are arranged around an imposing house in Moorish style, which is home to the Jakober family’s collection as well as a fabulous art library where the island’s students and interested visitors are welcome to study.
