I visited this place the first time by accident. The second time, it was a planned part of my week in Ecuador. Oswaldo Guayasamin is to Ecuador what Diego Rivera was to Mexico. He is a national treasure, one of ten children of a farmer. His father drove a tractor and would bring home artifacts he found in his work; these turned out to be ancient pre-Columbian pieces which fueled Guayasamin's love for art from a young age. He knew many world leaders, and painted images of them, including Mitterand, Castro, Allende, and others. His style is distinctive, however, he was able to diverge into different types of painting, depending on the year and the subject. It is amazing to go into his home and see his shirt splattered with paint, his art collection, breathtaking religious artifacts, handmade furniture, and his studio, with paint still in it. It is a lovely place where he spent the last twenty years of his life atop a hill in Quito in the Bella Vista Area. I found the experience quite moving and appreciated his empathy for the suffering of his fellow man, as well as his hope for civility in the future. This place is so important and I am grateful that he bequeathed it and its contents to Ecuador for all to enjoy. His remains are at rest under the "tree of life" out in the yard.
Una de las mejores cosas de Quito

Quizá lo mejor de Quito. La Capilla del Hombre es un museo que no se puede dejar de visitar, las obras de Guayasamin resuman dolor y ansias de libertad. Creo que todo aquel que visite la casa y el museo de Guayasamin saldrá con un espíritu renovado

Es un magnífico lugar para conocer la vida y obra de Oswaldo Guayasamín. Tanto la Capilla del Hombre como el museo valen la pena. Buen plan.
