Finally, in 1917 Riquer installed himself in Palma de Mallorca, where he organized exhibitions at the Círculo Mallorquin in April 1918 and May 1919, and at La Veda in January 1920; these exhibitions were especially enjoyed by the more conservative sectors of the islands.
In 1920, shortly before his death, Riquer still found time to display his Mallorcan landscapes at the Casino Sabadellenc in Sabadell, again at the Sala Parés in Barcelona, and also in Paris, at the Salon d'Automne. These late exhibitions give some idea of the vitality Riquer possessed until his final moments.
Death came to Alexandre de Riquer on Mallorca at the age of 64, on that island with the memory of his homeland, his childhood, and his youth which were his deepest passions.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
