Museo De Arte Carrillo Gil - Museum Mexico City - Mexico

The Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil in San Ángel occupies an important place in México City’s modern art world. The museum houses 1,775 works, most of them from the personal collection of Dr. Álvar and Carmen Carrillo Gil, who gave it to the Mexican people. Carrillo Gil, a businessman from Yucatán, first purchased a José Clemente Orozco drawing titled La Chole, and began collecting Mexican and international artists. Works by Klee, Rouault, Braque, Kandinsky, Rivera, and Siqueiros round out the collection.
