Casa del Arte - Pinacoteca, Concepcion

4.7
#1 of 14 in Museums in Biobio Region
Casa del Arte - Pinacoteca hosts the largest collection of works by Chilean artists from the colonial period to the 19th and 20th centuries, including a monumental mural. Mexican artist Jorge González Camarena painted the 250 sq m (2,690 sq ft) "Presencia de América Latina" from 1964 to 1965, reflecting the cultural, social, and union values of the Latin American countries. Other collections include masters of Chilean painting, portraits, self-portraits, landscape paintings, embroidery, photography, and a number of works by foreign artists. When you visit, notice that the museum building itself represents a mixture of neoclassical and Art Nouveau styles--due to partial reconstruction following a 1960 earthquake.

  • The art house is recognized by the mural, but they also have a collection of outstanding Chilean art, temporary exhibitions of contemporary art and a very good shop and cafeteria. Among the pieces in the collection of Chilean art, others can be from Gil de Castro works to paintings of Arturo Gordon or Fossa Calderón, among many.
