About the Museum
Prominently located at the northern end of Puerto Madero, the trendy neighborhood of the Argentine capital, is this stunning art museum showcasing the private collection of the late philanthropist Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat. The Colección de Arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat was designed by Uruguayan-born New Yorker Rafael Viñoly, and constructed with steel, glass and concrete to create a light-filled modern architecture. The Fortabat Collection houses almost 1000 works of art ranging from Pieter Bruegel to Andy Warhol, who made a portrait of the late collector back in 1980. The museum has a focus on prominent works by Argentinian artists from the XIX century to the present, as well as a smaller but impressive section of its collection dedicated to international art.
