Coleccion de Arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat, Buenos Aires

4.4
Founded by one of Argentina's wealthiest women, Coleccion de Arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat exhibits lesser works of prominent artists, like a little-known Warhol portrait. The collection also includes pieces by Brueghel, Rodin, Klimt, Dali, Picasso, and Chagall. Arguably the most interesting feature of the steel, glass, and concrete building are the mobile aluminum panels above the glassy ceiling. The gallery founder requested the panels so that she could look at her paintings and gaze at the stars simultaneously. The views from the side gallery over the docks rival figurative works by Carlos Alonso and Juan Carlos Castagnino, featured in this gallery.

  • On the tour of puerto Madero, a building made for Museum with a collection worthy of the best museums of the world, a collection to revel in Argentina and international-painting

  • Well worth the time to appreciate a magnificent collection of artwork, and a beautiful part of the city. The special exhibitions are often amazing as well.  more »
  • The name is due to a millionaire friend of Rockefeller and owner of argentina's largest cement Emporium. When he died, he donated part of his collection to this center that is worth visiting for the place where it is hosted, for its architecture and its environment.

  • This collection is very nice for people who like paintings. There were no temporary exhibitions when we visited, so the floors above ground were closed. We visited the regular collection in the underground floors. The museum has a great collection of Argentine art of the 19 and 20 centuries apart from some modern contemporary art. It starts t when the main motive were countryside landscapes and gaucho images. There is even a Breughel and s Turner in the collection. Some explanations are in English. Guided tour was only in Spanish, with a very knowledgeable but not particularly friendly guide. A small souvenir shop. I was aldi expected to see a bit more on Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat, an important figure in industry and art sponsorship. Her portrait by Andy Wharlor is here.
  • Amazing museum. The private collection is exquisite
  • Well executed building, great display spaces!
  • It's a must in Puerto Madero. No photographs allowed.
  • Beatiful, it is a great place to visit.
