Firma & Odilo Estévez Museum of Decorative Art

At the heart of the historic center of the city, this Museum houses a permanent collection of European paintings from the 17th to the 19th centuries, ivory objects, Spanish American silver, tapestries, rugs, glassware, porcelain and sculptures.

Inaugurated on 8 July 1968, the place was bequeathed by Firma Mayor de Estévez to the city in memory of her husband, Odilo Estévez. The bequest comprised the couple’s house and the works of art and items that they had collected during almost thirty years. Located on Santa Fe St, opposite the “Plaza 25 de Mayo” (Main Square surrounded by the City Hall, the Cathedral and the Central Post Office), it is part of a group of buildings of great architectural value, a testimony to Rosario’s historical development.
The collection includes paintings by Goya, Magnasco, David, Mattia Preti, Eugenio Lucas and Vicente López y Portaña. There is Spanish-style furniture from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, high-quality replicas of French furniture from the 18th century and post-colonial pieces from the River Plate Area.The Museum also holds 19th century French and Italian sculptures, early 20th century Argentine sculptures, European and Eastern ivory objects, antique glassware, porcelain, pottery, jade objects, tapestries, Spanish and Eastern rugs, fans and a valuable collection of Spanish American silver.
