Colección de Arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat

Museum in Puerto Madero

Prominently located at the northern end of Puerto Madero is this stunning art museum showcasing the private collection of the late billionaire, philanthropist and socialite Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat. There are works by Antonio Berni and Raúl Soldi, as well as pieces by international artists including Dalí, Klimt, Rodin and Chagall; look for Warhol’s colorful take on Fortabat herself in the family portrait gallery.

The building was designed by renowned Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly, and is constructed from steel, glass and concrete – the last a most appropriate material considering its patron (Fortabat was the major stockholder of Argentina’s largest cement company).
