El Museo Nacional de Artes

The days are getting shorter and more stormy here, so it is nice to revisit Mexico by drawing it. Another page filled in my travel sketchbook.

In front of the Museo Nacional de Artes in Mexcio City after visiting the Caravaggio exhibition. The museum is housed in a neoclassical building and the building itself is quite stunning. Who has been there?

In front of the museum is a large equestrian statue by Manuel Tolsá of Charles IV of Spain, who was the monarch just before Mexico gained its independence.
