  • Its small but a very nice museum packed with lot of interesting art works.
  • AN INTIMATE SPACE WITH WORKS OF HIGH QUALITY IN THE CIUDAD DE LA PLATA... In 1887 because of a large donation of works of art, the Provincial Museum of fine arts begins to emerge. In 1920, artists and lovers of the fine arts was founded in La Plata the Círculo de Bellas Artes and promoted the creation of a Museum of fine arts. The Executive Branch picked up the initiative and by Decree on February 18, 1922 created the Provincial Museum of fine arts, your organization should be entrusted to a Committee of the Museum of fine arts in the province of Buenos Aires. Pettoruti led the Museum for 17 years, until 1947. Under his direction, the collection left regionalist dye to pass to become a collection of Argentine art. Currently, the collection consists of more than 3200 works, including paintings, sculptures, engravings, drawings, tapestries and other techniques of the Visual Arts that are exhibited on a rotating basis. The Museum is divided into two parts, mounting area and curatorial. The works are chosen by color and theme according to the curators and the Director of the Museum. The Museum, currently in the building belonging to the film Guemes, in the calle 51 No. 525 of the city of La Plata, has exhibition halls, a library with more than 3000 volumes, periodicals, slides, a workshop of conservation works, and a collection of nearly 3200 pictorial works. The activities carried out in the museum include exhibitions, plastic child courses, seminars on art history. A prominent role is annual salons as Salon Edelap organization, for resident artists in matches where it offers services that company, young Art Salon, destined to the Buenos Aires artists of up to 30 years of age, the Provincial Hall of Buenos Aires Florencio Molina Campos, destined for provincial artists with experience in the field of Visual Arts. The itinerant exhibitions programme was also implemented. Acquisition of the first epoch of the Museum collection policies were guided by a regionalist approach. Most of the works of this period were acquired in artistic contests. In this way entered, between 1922 and 1932, La Plata artists and later other resident artists at parties close to the Federal Capital. Such is the case of Salvador Calabrese, Francisco Vecchioli, Adolfo Travascio, José Martorell, Emilio Coutaret, Faustino Brughetti, among others. In 1930, is appointed Emilio Pettoruti as director of the Museum. Thanks to his efforts, reinstalling the Museum in the Pasaje Dardo Rocha, and on August 6, 1932 was reopened. In 1932, also, Sarah Wilkinson of Marsengo donates his collection of works. This collection, along with the Benito Sosa and the of the Government of the province of Buenos Aires, are the founding collections of the Museum. A very interesting visit with the possibility of being very close to art and artists...
