The Museu Frederic Marès is an art and sculpture museum in BarcelonaCataloniaSpain.

The Museu contains a collection of thousands of items from the sculptor Frederic Marès. Located near the Barcelona Cathedral, the Museu collection includes statuary from pre-Roman times through to almost the present day, with a particular emphasis on medieval Christian art, and a separate ‘Collector’s Cabinet’ of artisan items such as fans and keys.

Frederic Marès Deulovol, also known as Federico Marés (Portbou, province of Girona; 18 September 1893 – Barcelona; 16 August 1991) was a Spanish sculptor.

Marès’s artistic career was spent within the limits of the traditional figurative sculpture learned at the School of Arts and Industries and Fine Arts in Barcelona and in the workshop of Eusebi Arnau, where he learned not only the sculptor’s craft but also a particular conception of sculpture, heir to the tradition of the 19th century, which was inclined towards commemorative, ornamental, funerary and medallic sculpture.

After the Spanish Civil War, commissions for commemorative medals, especially from Barcelona City Council and the Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre, increased considerably, resulting in an extensive catalogue of his work.
