Born in Madrid in 1958, Reyes Jiménez de Garnica graduated in Fine Arts at the Universidad Complutense, specialising in heritage conservation and preservation. After pursuing her research at the Istituto Centrale per il Restauro de Roma as a Fellow of the Spanish Academy in Rome, she worked in Switzerland and France in several restoration projects.
Since 2002 she directs the Department of Preventive Conservation and Restoration of the Museu Picasso de Barcelona. Aside from co-ordinating and carrying out preservation activities of its funds, she co-ordinates research projects that could enlighten Picasso’s creative process, his techniques and the materials he used. As a result of this research, she curated exhibitions such as Ciencia y Caridad al descubierto (2010) or Viaje a través del azul: La Vida (2013) at the Museu Picasso.
The last scientific collaboration has been with the Musée National Picasso in Paris for the exhibition Picasso Chefs d’oeuvre and with the Musée d’Orsay in their exhibition Picasso: Bleu et rose.
