Fresco murals, watercolour paintings, sculptures, plans… A tour not to be missed!
The legacy of the great artist
We're not exaggerating when we say that Pedro Nel Gómez was the best muralist in Colombia during the 20th century, and one of the most outstanding in Latin America; those kinds of multi-disciplinary artists who stand out in any discipline that they take pride in, and it's no surprise that he was known as 'el pintor de la patria' (painter of the homeland). The figures of this house speak for themselves in which the great artist used to live: 160 square metres of great fresco murals, sculptures, nearly two thousand water colour paintings, and an endless amount of urban plans and architectural projects; in short, it's an essential enclave for understanding the development and the Paisa idiosyncrasy of the last few decades. The museum was inaugurated in 1975 and it consists of ten rooms in which numerous works are exhibited that make a complete tour round the artist's different periods. It's such an extensive collection, and there's a possibility for groups to do a guided tour, which needs to be booked in advance.
