    Exhibit from the Bellas artes Museum

    The Bellas Artes (Fine Arts) museum in Recoleta was our favourite of the many museums in Buenos Aires. There is a good variety of paintings on display, especially by 19th century European impressionists. The upper level is devoted to South American artists and there are many impressive Argentine paintings as well as pre-Columbian exhibits as well as displays of Peruvian and Mexican artifacts.

    A small but diverse fine arts museum which, best of all, is free! You can see paintings by Rembrandt, van Gogh, Monet, Renior, Picasso, and many local artists. A visit here can easily be combined with a visit to the Recoleta cementary.

    First, the entrance to this excellent museum is free: you pay nothing and get to see Renoir, Courbet, Goya as well as an excellent selection of Argentinian Art displayed in a didatic way. Then you have to go upstairs to the terrace, where there are sculptures and a nice view including the Law School and the Metal Flower.

    This museum is a good place to visit for both European and Argentine art. The European collection is comprehensive, with several fine pieces that give a good overview of major movements. Compared with the famous world class museums such as the Metropolitan in NY, the Louvre or the Prado, the MNBA may not seem up to par. But that may be seen as a blessing in disguise. You can see a lot without becoming completely overwhelmed. The popular artists are represented: Picasso, Van Gogh, major impressionists etc. There are more paintings by the Spanish painter Joquin Sorolla than I have seen anywhere outside of Madrid.
    I think this would be a great museum to take students for an introduction to art history.

    BUENOS AIRES : MUSEO NACIONAL DE BELLAS ARTES

    by swesn Written Feb 24, 2004

    I had expected the usual boring classic art-work but instead, I was superbly impressed with the very, very INTERESTING modern art sections. Excellent works! Good European and Argentine works too.

    One of my most enjoyable museum experiences.

    Entry was free for me. I went on a Sunday. To be honest, I am not sure if it is free everyday, or just on Sundays.

    But do go on a Sunday, so that you can enjoy the Feria at Plaza Francia opposite right after.

    The National Museum of Fine Arts has a relatively large collection of fine art, including international masters (e.g. Monet, Renoir, Degas). There is a nice mix of classical and modern art as well as painting and sculpture.

    The temporary exhibit was full of giant modern paintings that I would never want hanging on my own walls, but taken as a whole, was quite amazing and surreal to stroll through. The museum also has gift shop and a cafe.

    Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes

    Argentina's principal art museum exhibits mostly 19th and 20th century paintings and some sculpture.

    On the ground floor is a small but refined collection of European art (Degas, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Sisley, El Greco, Goya, Rubens, Chagall, Modigliani among others), while the upper floor galleries contain a selection of major Argentine artists (Prilidiano Pueyrredón, Pellegrini, Morel, Della Valle, Sívori, Spilimbergo, Xul Solar), many of them influenced by European masters or even educated in Europe.

    Additional spaces on both floors are used for temporary exhibitions either Argentine or international artists.

    Tues-Fri 12.30-7.30pm, Sat & Sun 9.30am-7.30pm; free
