Spanning the period from 1983 to the present day, Stories of the Collection summarises key moments in the formation of the Caixa Geral de Depósitos (CGD) Collection. Across distinct points and through the presentation of its most important acquisitions, we follow the desires, tastes, policies and circumstances of each specific moment of the collection’s development: The Decorative Collection (1983-89); The Art Collection (1990-97); Diversification (2000-04); Photographs (1991 and 2004); Precision (2004-08 and 2014); Prints (2007); Donations and Bequests (1967-2021); Resuming Acquisitions (2020-21); New Acquisitions: renowned artists (2022 and 2023); New Acquisitions: mid-career artists (2022 and 2023); Caixa Contest for Young Artists (2022 and 2023).

Continuing the resumption of acquisitions for the CGD Collection, it was also possible, in 2022, to favour the acquisition of works by mid-career artists not yet represented in the CGD Collection, such as Fernando Brito (Pampilhosa da Serra, Portugal, 1957), Francisca Carvalho (Lisbon, Portugal, 1981) and Mattia Denise (Blois, France, 1967).
