Delfina Entrecanales Death

Delfina Entrecanales Death, Obituary not available: Delfina Entrecanales, a patron of the arts and the founder of the Delfina Foundation, has died at the age of 94.

Entrecanales was born in southern Spain in 1927, and his boyhood was shaped in part by the Spanish Civil War. “My father’s family was not politically active in any way, but my mother’s was.” My uncle served in the Republican military as a common. “One was an undersecretary of state, and the other was an envoy,” she told the Financial Times.

“I think in the future, people looking back will see her significance,” artist Anya Gallaccio told the BBC. “Her own children were slightly older, and it was like we became her project at that moment.” Chantal Jaffe added, “What I loved is that she never wanted anything in return,” describing how Entrecanales wouldn’t even take one of Jaffe’s paintings for free when it was offered, continuing, “In art, people always want something, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, [but with Entrecanales] there actually was.”

According to, Delfina Entrecanales, the renowned Spanish-born, London-based arts patron who founded the Delfina Studio Belief in 1988 and the Delfina Basis in 2007, died at the age of 94. The foundations of Entrecanales supported nearly a thousand artists, many of whom went on to achieve considerable success, and more than a dozen of whom were nominated for or awarded the Turner Prize.

The Obituary will be Officially released by the family.
