  • Wonderful guide, very knowledgeable, She gave us more than an hour and showed us all the important and not so important (well-known) paintings. The tour of the house was also very much worth it.  more »
  • Art is, we realize, personal. And Guayasamin's certainly is. I can't say we enjoyed his art work but we understood why he painted what he did. We did enjoy the tour of his home.  more »
