The Museu de Menorca includes a selection of artworks which are privately owned and the majority of increased in number when the Museum was opened in 1998.
In 1999, M. Juana Ferrer deposited the work Dones menorquines by Pasqual Calbó i Caldés. In 2015, her son, José Luis Montoto expressed the desire that the painting should become a part of the permanent exhibition at the Museu and that he would donate this, as his mother had died the previous year.
The painting was restored in the museum in 2000 and it is an essential part of the museum display and has been exhibited in the 18th Century Room together with other works by Calbó. It is a composition which is made up of five drawings of the Menorcan lady in Menorcan dress.
