“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

We found Guayasamin's art to be distinctive but repetitive, although the "capilla" is worth visiting. Don't miss the museum in his house next door, which is a must-see. Unfortunately, our tour guide failed to mention it--so we only saw the front few rooms before we had to hurry on....

“Collection of works by Guayasamin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Before visiting the place I was not aware of the artist and his works, but this place was definitely an eye opener and educative one for the same. This place houses some of his most famous works and almost all of them shows his strong view points to the society and the plight of less privileged people and most of his works shout of the agony of these people.

The house tour and museum tour were very interesting and informative. The view of Quito from the house is awe inspiring.

“Homage to an incredible indigenous artist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Very few people outside of Latin America know who Guayasamin is....but his work is brilliant, painfully stark and a homage to the working peoples of Ecuador.

“Can Capilla be seen without house tour?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

I reviewed the house tour and Capilla in the same review and then found this listed separately. I don't think you can buy separate tickets for these places. The artist wanted to build a chapel to house a particular series of his art work. The building was completed after his death. The uncompleted dome shows where his work ended. The art work is gritty and political in the spirit of Picasso from the 1930s. Most art lovers would enjoy time spent here.
