  • Museum in the beautiful neighborhood of Prado, bringing above all the work of Blanes and iconic part of your 33 Orientales. There are also works by other artists on the site. There is no charge for admission.

  • Blanes was a painter of humble origin, and giant conviction. Relying on his talent, and guided by his love for painting, he conquered proficiency levels the academic painting of remarkable proportions. I have been captivated his talent, his strokes. I met him by three paintings exhibited at another Museum. After seeing those I have been convinced of his Symbolist qualities, inviting more to meditation than to a level regulatory comment. In this space, dedicated to his name, large paintings have been deployed. With patriotic-heroic airs well achieved. Other pictures show a gradual process of improvement, as a witness of the road traveled to dominate oil and palette. The space where the collection has been deployed is wonderful. Great gardens, inspiring environment.
