  • Pedro Figari (1861-1938) was born in Montevideo and was in addition to painter, lawyer, poet, politician and founder of the newspaper "El Deber" journalist. His articles were crucial to the abolition of the death penalty in 1906. At 60 he voluntarily exiled in Buenos Aires first and then in Paris. In about 15 years, he made more than 4000 artworks where gaucho, African slave and their descendants are the key figures. The Museum depends on the National Directorate of culture, has no profits and is open to the general public. Its objective is the conservation, research and communication of the work of Pedro Figari and his son Juan Carlos
