Thank you!
Located alongside the Museo de Bellas Artes, the National Art Gallery opened as recently as 2009, after some ten troubled years of building work, and was certainly well worth the wait. This art museum holds a staggering collection numbering more than 7,000 pieces, spanning around 500 years. Inside you will discover that there is everything here from pre-Hispanic art to contemporary masterpieces. The new, nearly completed National Art Gallery was inaugurated by Hugo Chávez in 2009 and now stands as Venezuela’s physically largest museum. Construction on its nearly 31,000 sq meters originally began in 1989 but was abandoned in the mid-’90s. Architect Carlos Gómez de Llerena.

    NOTA DEL CATÁLOGO
    After a prodigious career in Venezuela, Cristóbal Rojas moved to Paris in 1883. During his stay there he studied at the
    Académie Julien with his compatriot Arturo Michelena under Professor Jean Paul Laurens. He frequently participated
    at the Salon Officiel with monumental paintings which often represented realist tableaux of Parisians' daily life. In the
    latter part of his life, he engaged into more luminous compositions, like his whimsical Dante and Beatriz (Ministry of
    Foreign Affairs Collection, Caracas) and La Lectora.
    Rafael Páez, one of his biographers wrote in 1974 : "In this last period of his life, Rojas worked on another painting that deserves the title of the most important contribution to Venezuelan Painting in the 19 C : The Reader.
