The Laxeiro Foundation in Vigo is the best way to discover the works of José Otero Abeledo. Better known as Laxeiro (Lalín, 1908 – Vigo, 1996), this artist adopted by the city of Vigo is a key figure in the history of Galician painting.

The permanent exhibition consists of more than 60 works by this artist, considered to be the most representative member of the "Renewers of Galicia’s historical vanguard” movement. Its members led a plastic renewal that exceeded the regionalist movement prevailing at the time and which put Galicia’s aesthetic identity in line with European trends.

The Laxeiro Foundation is in the emblematic Casa das Artes.
