Museo José Luis Cuevas Review

Installed in a refurbished former Santa Inés convent, this inviting museum displays international modern art as well as work by Mexico's enfant terrible, José Luis Cuevas, one of the country's best-known contemporary artists. The highlight is the sensational La Giganta (The Giantess), Cuevas's 8-ton bronze sculpture in the central patio. It represents male-female duality and pays homage to Charles Baudelaire's poem of the same name. There is also a small collection of original Rembrandt and Picasso drawings. Up-and-coming Latin American artists appear in temporary exhibitions throughout the year. No photographs are permitted.
