Fundación Guayasamín

Visit the home and museum dedicated to the great Ecuadorian painter and sculptor Oswaldo Guayasamín (1919-1999). Perched above Quito in the Bellavista neighborhood, the house and landscaped grounds overflow with not just his own powerful art but also the pre-Columbian, archeological and modern artistic treasures he collected.
