This section has two aims. Firstly, that of being a platform for the dissemination of knowledge generated by the Museum's publishing activities; and secondly, that of encouraging the creation of a body of scholarly texts on art in the Basque language, making a significant volume of information in this language available to the academic community and the interested public at large while simultaneously furthering lexicographic endeavour in this field.
Since the time it was founded, the Museum's missions have included research into the subject of art history, with a particular focus on the study of its own collection. The result of this activity is an extensive series of publications on paper, including exhibition catalogues, collection guides and periodical publications of a scholarly nature.
Reproduced here is a series of texts of particular importance that have previously been published on paper and which are now being republished in a format appropriate for reading on screen or for printing out at home. They can be downloaded in Spanish and Basque and in most cases in English.
All the texts are published under an international Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs Creative Commons licence (BY-NC-ND), version 4.0. They can therefore be circulated, copied and reproduced (with no alteration to the contents), but for educational and research purposes only and always citing its author and provenance.
