Art has found a new place where to be enjoyed in the City of Neuquén. The Fine Arts National Museum has opened the doors of its only branch in the provinces in the City of Neuquén to share its artistics heritage.
The 2,200-square-meter building is located in the center of the city. The inauguration exhibition is made up by works of European art, from the Rennaissance up to the XIX century, as well as by Argentinian art collections from the XIX century until the present. This is the first time in more than one century of the museum history that such a significant part of its heritage has been transferred to another museum outside the City of Buenos Aires.
The quality of its works, as well as the universal importance of its authors, reassures the significance that this museum has acquired from the very moment it opened its doors and confirms the City of Neuquén as an unavoidable cultural reference in the national and international fields.
Nowadays, works from authors such as Mantengo, Durero, Zurbarán, Soraya, Zuluaga, Rodin, Toulouse Lautrec, Torres García, Figari, Portinari, Pueyrredón, Cándido López, Spilimbergo and Quinquela Martín are exhibited, to mention a few. There are also traveling exhibitions, which are shown in one of the wings of the building.
