Description:

The Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil in San Ángel occupies an important place in México City's modern art world. Located in the San Angel neighborhood, 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, which is housed in a landmark modern structure that also contains a bookstore, café, and library. The Carrillo Gil serves as a laboratory for artists, students, critics, and professors, whose gatherings are often open to the public. Close to the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil are the Museo del Carmen, Museo Casa del Risco and Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo.
