Last Friday I was at Quinquela Martin Fine Arts Museum in La Boca.
I must say it is beautiful place, enormous, sunny and the artworks inside are great.
They have picture from Argentine’s Masters and the second floor is dedicated to Quinquela’s Works. ( It was Quinquela’s House).
Between Argentine Painters are artworks from : Medilaharzu, Sivori, De la Carcova, Victorica, Lacámara, Castagnino and Soldi.
They also arrange temporary exhibitions of comtemporary Artists.
This month the special exhibition is "Eternal Femenine". A collection of differents
artworks, where the woman is in the center of the scene, as musa ,as subject, or as artist.
This Museum is full of surprises.
There is a beautiful terrace of sculptures, where you can find artworks from Yrrurtia
There is also a room dedicated to "Mascarones de proa".( They were figureheads in the corner of ships.)
And if you want to feel yourself as a captain you will enjoy looking from the terrace, the neighbourhood, the river , and La Boca Bridge through a panoramic viewer.
I will write on later, but if you don’t have enough pacience you have to go there, you would not regret it !
