The Juan B. Castagnino Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most important museums in the country. Today, it opens its doors to show an exhibition about the Rosario artists’ society.
Located on one of the borders of the Parque Independencia, on Pellegrini Avenue, the Juan B. Castagnino Museum of Fine Arts is the most important museological center in the heart of the country. Conceived in 1936 as one of the most modern buildings for its time, it has two stories with a total of 35 exhibition rooms.
In the inside, it treasures works from all times, origins and schools. The museum’s heritage consists in two permanent collections: European art, from the XV to the XX century and Argentinian Art, from their precursors to contemporary artists.
In the first collection, the Flanders’ tables from the XVI century attributed to Mabuse and Gerard David, Italian and Spanish Baroque paintings, and the Francisco de Goya’s complete series, outstand among the most important works.

The multiple expressions by artists
The second collection –or Argentinian art- has important series of engravings signed by Carlos Pellegrini, Antonio Berni and Alfredo Guido. Besides, countless sculptures by well-known local artists embellish the depths of the immense building.
At present, the Museum of Fine Arts exhibits a collection entitled “The Artists’ Society – Stories and discussions from Rosario”, which will be open to the public until April 2, 2005.
This exhibition shows the visions of Rosario creators from the early XX century to the present avant garde. It is in search for fostering an aesthetic and human vision of the works, evoking the discussions about art which acted as their support.
We suggest that you attend this excellent exhibition and see the multiple expressions by local artists.
