I invite you to explore some of our news about the city of Buenos Aires.

Quinquela, the most famous paintor of La Boca.

Benito Quinquela Martín’s Museum is located in La Boca neighborhood in Buenos Aires. It was founded in 1938. It was built on land originally donated by the painter for the construction of an elementary school and a museum, which you can visit nowadays. Committed to educational processes, the Museum promotes a conception of art as a decisive factor in the daily processes of identity construction. It has an important collection of figurative Argentine works of art from the late 19th century to the present day. Quinquela Martín designed this Museum where he also installed his atelier and home. But.... who was Quinquela Martin? He was a painter that lived the whole life in La Boca and he not only painted but he also worked for his community. It was founded in 1938. His paintings deal with the life of the people that worked at the port as La Boca was the first port in Buenos Aires. He was also the person who gave the bright and shiny colors to the neighborhood. So my recommendation is that if you visit Buenos Aires you must visit this museum and also the neighborhood of La Boca. It is one of the must-sees in Buenos Aires.
