Santiago’s museums: Fine Arts Museum

Across the Parque Forestal, you will see a building that looks like taken out from Paris; indeed the Petit Palais in Paris was taken as model in the construction of this museum. Built by French-Chilean architect Emile Jéquier in a neo-classical and art-nouveau styles reminds me more of the Orsay Museum in Paris. The museum itself is known as a copy museum, its collection of 3000 pieces were copies of the most famous art works. Here we visit the 13th Media Arts Biennial ‘Temblor’ which we tell later in detail.
