Evita Fine Arts Museum, Cordoba

Evita Fine Arts Museum, Cordoba (must see)

The Evita Fine Arts Museum is an art museum in Córdoba housed in the Ferreyra Palace, a Beaux-Arts mansion designed by French architect Ernest Sanson and built between 1912 and 1916 for Dr. Martín Ferreyra, a prominent local physician and surgeon.

Ferreyra chose the spot as a result of the development of the adjacent Sarmiento Park, a 17 hectare (43 acre) space created along what was then Córdoba's eastern edge (New Córdoba) and inaugurated in 1911. Subsequent generations added to the palace's interiors, notably the Imperial Bedroom (Dormitorio Imperio), so named because the furniture was copied by famed cabinetmaker Krieger of Paris, from those used by Napoleon Bonaparte.

The museum maintains 12 exhibit halls, a sculpture garden, library, and an auditorium for 120. Its collection of over 500 works includes those by Emilio Caraffa, Juan Carlos Castagnino, Gustave Courbet, Pablo Picasso, Joaquín Sorolla, Lino Enea Spilimbergo and Ricardo Supisiche, among others. The museum hosts ongoing temporary exhibits, as well.
