The Master of Modern Art in Ecuador

Works of Camilo Egas

Quito-Ecuador

Special visit to see the works of the pioneer of modern art in Ecuador and South America who had a big influence in local artists of the early 20th century.

DAY 01

Tour Description

Visit the Camilo Egas Museum, created by the Central Bank of Ecuador in a restored 17th century colonial mansion of the Historical Center of Quito. Now it is managed by the Ministry of Culture and Heritage.

Even though the current permanent exhibit has been reduced, curators selected some of the most outstanding masterpieces that show Camilo's artistic evolution from his earliest indigenous portraits made in Quito in the early 1910s, passing by his socially realistic paintings that he made when he moved to New York in 1927 and until his abstractions and surrealistic pictures.
