Location: 1835, Pedro de Mendoza St. La Boca.
This building has been recently recycled. It is located in a site donated by Quinquela Martín (painter, benefactor and illustrious neighbour) in 1933, in front of the Riachuelo, on Vuelta de Rocha, a piece of land for the construction of a building that would house a primary school, an Argentine art museum and his own home and workshop.
Its ample terraces and different levels host in their rooms paintings, sculptures and engravings pertaining to the collection with more than one thousand pieces. One of its halls exhibits figureheads belonging to famous schooners, sloops, steamships and vessels.
The exhibition located on the third floor, was initiated by Quinquela Martin and includes more than 90 pieces. His art was inspired by the intense life of the port neighbourhood of La Boca.
The “great Masters Hall” has works by the most prominent Argentine artists from the first half of the 20th Century.
