Museo Municipal de Arte Juan C.Castagnino, Mar del Plata

4.4
#2 of 7 in Museums in Mar del Plata
Standing out like a fairy-tale mountain castle in the streets of Mar del Plata, Museo Municipal de Arte Juan C.Castagnino impresses as much with its striking towers as with the exhibits it hosts. Completed in 1919 as the private residence of the wealthy Ortíz Basualdo family, the distinctive building now houses a museum displaying more than 450 pieces by local artists. Admire the works of Mar del Plata painter Juan Carlos Castagnino, who has around 180 pieces on display. Sadly, the museum feels somewhat incomplete, as several of its rooms remain empty.

  • A very interesting Museum. The building, container, a wonderful house. much more pregnant than their content, so everything there are various exhibitions, contemporary art, works from Castagnino and part of the furniture of the House. Beautiful experience.

  • The building is due to the architects Louis Dubois and Paul Paters.contratados by the family Ortiz Basualdo, following the art nouveau French cannons. The building was built in 1909 and was remodeled in 1919, retaining its classical style of early twentieth century. Reminiscences of the French castles of the Loire is reflected in each one of the rooms, decorated by the Belgian designer Gustave Serruier-Bovy, according to the art nouveau.imperante at the time. Original furniture from Belgium, the ladder of oak and iron with flowers and geometric lines, lamps, stained glass, furniture details and other parts of art nouveau, are considered by international experts as one of the best Collections in the world of that current.
