Donations made by private parties and relatives of many of the artists whose work is displayed in the venue constantly contribute to the vast repertoire of art pieces.
Rooms, Works and More Works
Like every museum, this one has its own logic. “Harmony” is the perfect word to describe what visitors experience as they tour around the rooms and corridors.
The works displayed here introduce visitors into the period ranging from 1880 to 1950. Pieces made by important and worldwide famous sculptors stand out. Some of them are José Belloni, José Severino Pose, Pablo Mañé, Federico Moller de Berg, Edmundo Prati, Federico Sonería, Luis P. Cantú and Heber Ramos Paz.
But the art world does not include only sculpture. Painting is also a protagonist with works by painters such as Pedro Blanes Viale, Ernesto Laroche, Carlos Castellanos, José Cúneo, Rafael Barradas, Carlos de Santiago and many others.
Whoever walks along the streets of the City of Maldonado should not miss a visit to the museum of sculptures and paintings. In addition to watching each of the pieces, visitors may see the wonderful side of this old city that breathes culture all year round and which, of course, it shares with those who come to pay a visit.
