Robert Brady Museum
In the shadow of the Cathedral of Cuernavaca, the Casa de la Torre houses a unique collection of fine and decorative arts from all over the world.
The visitor will enjoy a house-museum created in a portion of a massive XVI century Franciscan Convent...
The collections were assembled by Robert Brady (1928-1986). Born in Iowa, USA, with a career in the fine arts at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Tyler Arts Center of Temple University and the Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania, he established residence in Venice for five years before settling here in Cuernavaca in 1962.
During his entire creative life he traveled extensively adding to the collections, To be seen are major works of art by Rufino Tamayo, Frida Kahlo, Miguel Covarrubias, Maurice Prendergast, Marsden Hartley, Milton Avery and Graham Sutherland.
This collection of more than 1,300 works also includes Mexican colonial furniture, Pre-Hispanic figures and tribal art from Africa, the Americas, Oceania, India and the Far East displayed in the fourteen rooms open to the public.
With an unfailing artist's eye, Brady, a painter and designer, assembled this rich mosaic of contrasting styles and epochs. The wildly colorful rooms are exactly as Brady left them. Also the visitor will enjoy the sculptures and tropical vegetation of the two patios.
