Museo de Bellas Artes, Asuncion (must see)

The National Museum of Bellas Artes, located on Mcal. Estigarribia, displays over 650 works of art, paintings, sculptures, ceramics, prints, photographs, Paraguayan and international artists. As well as antique coins, furniture and various objects that belonged to its creator.

It was founded in 1909 by the collector Silvano Godoy, first director general of Museums and archives Paraguay. In 1939, the institution was formalized by the State as National Museum of Bellas Artes.

The works acquired by Juan Silvano Godoi come from artists of the 17th century, Italian and French half of 19th century, creators of Argentines who acquired some significance in subsequent decades and, of course, a whole generation of painters Paraguayans: Andres Campos Cervera, Carlos Colombino , Juan Samudio, Jaime Bestard, Holden Roberto Jara, Pablo Alborno, Modesto Delgado Rodas and Ignacio Núñez Soler, representatives of a school still in its infancy, but vibrant forces and energies.
