Capilla del Hombre

14 reviews of Capilla del Hombre

One man’s humanist vision on the state of the world.

Excellent

Striking and thought provoking. Oswald Guayasamín was awarded a prize by UNESCO for his work in the area of human rights. Unusually his work is painted on panels which could be rearranged to create new perspectives.

If you liked Guernica or Francis Bacon this is a must see. The easiest way to arrive is by taxi around 5 dollars from Quito old town, the lady in the ticket office will call a return taxi.

If you return from South America via Madrid T4S you will be confronted once more by his outstanding work.

Chapel of Man

I came across this spectacular place, Capilla del Hombre (Chapel of Man), full of paintings by Guayasamin. This truly is art from the heart, and the great humanist created these pictures to promote human rights and to humanise our society.
