“Interesting Museum”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

The Museo Nestor shows the work of Nestor Martin Fernandez de la Torre (1887-1938), a native of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This artist was 14 years old when he went to live in Madrid to study art and later went to the other European capitals to practice and perfect his art. He later returned to Las Palmas and was active in painting there, and among his paintings were the decoration of the Teatro Perez Galdos. His paintings had plenty of color and he used fantasy a lot. The museum was built by his brother Miguel, a prominent architect in the city, and it opened its doors in 1956. In the museum his best paintings were the Portrait of Madame Bocher and La Hermana de las Rosas. Many of the paintings exhibited in the museum are erotic.
