Commercial galleries

Madrid is the Spanish city with the greatest concentration of art galleries. The commercial art offer has been increasing over the last 30 years. It first started at the Salamanca area, later in Chueca and Alonso Martínez and more recently in Atocha, around the Reina Sofía museum. A number of excellent galleries can be found in other districts too. Many art galleries are closed in August and many are also closed on Sundays and/or Mondays.

ARTEMADRID is the association of the main art galleries of Madrid. At their website you will find addresses and directions to different galleries. More complete listings of galleries are published, with updated information about current artists' work in display, in newspapers.
