The Enrique Ochoa Foundation was set up by the heirs of the painter (his grandchildren José Francisco and Isabel Estevez) in order to recover the huge legacy left by the author, as well as promote the awareness of his work and life through exhibitions, lectures, discussions, in collaboration with other institutions, etc. Officially established in 2013, the Foundation has its roots in the Institute of Art Studies Enrique Ochoa, which, since the death of the painter in 1978, has developed a quiet but important research work.
With headquarters in Madrid, the Enrique Ochoa Foundation works as a private, non-profit cultural foundation. The foundations main aim is the conservation, custody, study, exhibition, distribution and acquisition of artwork from Enrique Ochoa´s collection, as well as any property related to him.

Grant awards and fellowships for artists and researchers; hold events; organize exhibitions, concerts, courses and seminars; create cultural and educational establishments and research centers; edit publications, agreements and exchanges with universities, institutions and Spanish and foreign centers; etc.
