Colección De Arte Amalia Lacroze De Fortabat review 2 Users say 3/5 Rate it

The 'collection' in the name refers to the fact that this impressive new gallery, containing both Argentinian and international art, is the
privately owned treasure trove of the
country's richest woman, Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat. Of the Argentinian works, look out for the psychologically complex paintings of Carlos Alonso and the highly versatile work on show by Antonio Berni. Downstairs, don't miss the Dalí or the Brueghel pieces, the Warhol portrait of Amalita, the collection's owner, nor William Turner's Juliet and her Nurse, a typical experiment in optical realism by the British master that is thought to be worth US$60 million.

This is a terrific little private collection. The development of local South American art is the real draw - with some stunning works by local artists - but there are a few star attractions, including Turner and Andy Warhol.
Note that this rating has been dragged down by one other review which I will not comment on.

Bad installation. Third tier art,and my guess , Breughel is only a friend of Breughel or worse

I had the pleasure to work for Amalita, sometimes in the past years. This idea of creating the Museum with her private collection, once more does highlight her vision of art and culture, before anyonelse.
Ciao Amalita.
