Estudio de Joaquín Clausell

Located on the flat roof of the Museum of Mexico is the former studio of this 19th century Mexican painter. Clausell was an impressionist strongly influenced by Monet, and you can see more than sixty square metres of his murals, the result of the artist, somewhat fortuitously, cleaning his brushes on the surrounding walls. As a consequence he left behind a fusion of landscapes, nudes and faces for the onlooker to decipher. Admission is free of charge.

Pinacoteca del Templo de la Profesa

If you are walking around the old historic city centre on a Sunday afternoon and are not quite sure what to do, you could perhaps drop into this art gallery. Considered to be one of the most important in the country, it is only open to the public on this particular day of the week. The exhibition includes paintings by some of the most famous artists from the colonial period, including Juan Correa, Villalpando and José Juárez. There is also a section dedicated to the Virgin Mary and another to religious art, from the early colonial days to the nineteenth century. A good opportunity to see a fine collection of quality paintings.

Museo Nacional de Arte

Facing the Plaza Tolsá, this neo-classical building was constructed between 1904 and 1911. A statue of Carlos IV stands guard at the entrance of the Museo Nacional de Arte, which was opened in 1982. The marble sculptures now found in the museum's lobby were once displayed in the Alameda Central. The evolution of Mexican art from the pre-Hispanic era to the end of the 19th Century can be seen in the 14 exhibit halls. There are also temporary exhibits.
