for important artists who tackle the least favoured disciplines, such as sketching and carving. In addition, it has an important spreading role among children and teenagers, senior citizens and people with special needs. All this is done in a captivating building characterized by its low-profile first-rate architecture set in a garden populated by centennial trees.’
The essence of the Sívori Museum is completely reflected in these words by María Isabel de Larrañaga, director of the museum.

Located in the colourful area of the Palermo lakes, the Sívori Museum has been involved in Argentinean art for over 70 years. Although its present-day building is the same one where the museum was opened in 1938, in the meantime, its premises have changed location.

In 1952, the museum was moved to 2373, Del Libertador Avenue, and afterwards to 1033, Paraguay Street, from where it was duly relocated in the General San Martín Theatre. It was not until 1996 that the museum was moved back to its original premises, where it remains nowadays.

The art collection that can be found there is varied. At the Sívori museum more than 3,000 works of art dating from the 19th and especially the 20th century can be found. There are also present-day works, a result of the acquisition prizes of the Manuel Belgrano Plastic Art rooms, which allow the income of the latest trends into the artistic heritage of the museum.

The renowned artists whose works inhabit the museum are: Eduardo Sívori; Martín Malharro, Fernando Fader; Benito Quinquela Martín, Emilio Pettoruti and Alfredo Guttero; Juan Melé, Gyula Kosice, Raúl Loza- representatives of the Concrete, Madí and Perceptive Art movement; Manuel Alvarez, Ary Brizzi, Miguel Angel Vidal and Clorindo Testa, among many others.

Eduardo Sívori was born in Buenos Aires in 1847. He was a businessman until age 37, but in the course of a trip to Europe he made in 1868 he became interested in painting. In Argentina he became a disciple of Aguyari, Charton and Francisco Romero, an Italian who was one of the first Fine Arts Stimuli teachers, an association Sívori co-founded. He went back to Europe in 1882 and often visited Colarossi academy, in Paris. He exhibited his works in the French exhibition halls; he became acquainted with Puvis de Chavannes and returned to Buenos Aires a perfectly qualified artist in 1890. Back in Argentina, where he developed the practice of etching, he got his inspiration from creole motifs and the Argentinean landscape, slowly evolving towards a clear and bright production, deducted from the impressionist lesson. Sívori died in Buenos Aires in 1918. A bust built in his memory in 1921 by sculptor Arturo Dresco is located in the Rosedal de Palermo (Palermo Rose Gardens).

In addition to plastic art exhibitions, the Sívori Museum offers a wide variety of workshops, including painting, drawing, sculpturing, wood carving, literature, philosophy, drama, etc.

An ideal visit to the museum should be combined with leisure activities around the green area in its surroundings, a walking tour around Palermo to discover the place many locals choose to practise sports.
