Ramón Gaya y el Museo del Pueblo de las Misiones Pedagógicas

Translated title of the contribution: Ramón Gaya and the 'People's Museum' of the Pedagogical Missions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article centres on the various contributions that Ramón Gaya made to the so-called 'People's Musem' of the Pedagogical Missions (1931 -1936). It explains the circumstances in which this Museum was created as well as the activities in which it was involved during the Second Republic. Special attention is paid to the conditions in which the Museum operated and to the importance it had both in the context of the dissemination of culture in the villages it visited and in terms of the "missionaries" themselves. In order to underline the particular significance that the Museum had in Gaya's own carreer, the article makes use of the painter's own personal testimony.
