The collection contains works dating from 1875 to the present day. It begins with paintings in the traditional realism style, with works by Galofre Oller and Baldomer Galofre. It continues with the Olot School, Modernism and Impressionist-influenced landscapes by Casas, Nonell, Mir and Urgell and their less distinguished followers Iu Pasqual, Pere Gussinyé, Marià Llavanera and Ignasi Mallol. From the first avant-garde period we find sculptures by Manolo Hugué and paintings by Olga Sacharoff and Francesc Domingo. The works of Joaquim Sunyer and Enric Casanovas are the most paradigmatic of the noucentista (early-twentieth-century) movement, along with those of Pruna and Humbert.

The museum has a good representation of post-war artists. They range from the figurative world of Mallol Suazo, Amat, Durancamps, Joan Serra and Bosch Roger to the more rupturist line of Miró, Tàpies and Brossa. Other artists present include Ramon Rogent, Hurtuna, Sucre, Fenosa, Cuixart, Jordi Mercadé, Guinovart, Aleu and Ràfols Casamada.
