The Ortiz Gurdian Museum
The collection of world-class paintings and works of art is housed in the original family home which was refurbished in 2000. The old colonial house is impressive in its own right – the collection spreads across two buildings and surrounding greenery-filled courtyards – but as for the paintings and works of art….
Some powerful sixteenth and seventeenth paintings imported from Spain, the luxurious realism of the Renaissance, the spare beauty of the colonial period, romanticism, modernism, postmodernism and modern pieces by Cuban, Peruvian and other Latin American schools. Big Latin names also make an appearance – Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Fernando Botero, Roberto Matta and more plus international names such as Picasso, Damian Hirst, David Hockney and Andy Warhol.
