The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (MNBA) in Recoleta inaugurated a new exhibit this week, showcasing the work of Pío Collivadino, an Argentine artist who portrayed the city landscapes. The artist, who was born in 1869, lived in Italy from 1890-1906 where he received his artistic education. When he returned to Buenos Aires, he created the Nexus group along with Fernando Fader, Cesáreo Bernaldo de Quirós, Carlos Ripamonte, Justo Lynch, Alberto Rossi and renowned sculptors Arturo Dresco and Rogelio Yrurtia. His paintings, which often follow impressionist and pointillist styles, have a photographic quality to them due to the angles and lighting that they capture.
The exhibit is open until the 25th of August and features over a hundred of his paintings, and also includes works by other artists from the Nexus movement. Av. Del Libertador 1473, Recoleta.
