The intersection between Tampico Street and Durango, Mazatlan, and Veracruz Avenues once housed the residence known as "El Barco," home to prominent figures such as Tina Modotti and Edward Weston, icons of the Mexican art scene during the first half of the 20th century. However, today, this space has been transformed into the Andrés Siegel / ART Gallery.


Although the Siegel family acquired the property in the 1970s, it was in the 1980s when Andrés Siegel initiated the process of rescuing and restoring the place through the project "Restoration and Adaptation of a Porfirian House in Ruins (circa 1912) for its use as a residence." This project was recognized with awards and selected for presentation in the exhibition "Rescued Heritage" at the Museum of Architecture of the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City. The restoration, crucially, preserved some of the original architectural elements, setting a standard for the creation of new spaces in old buildings.


In 1990, Andrés Siegel inaugurated Andrés Siegel / ART, a space dedicated to the promotion of Mexican art. Its diverse collection of art and antique furniture offers a wide range of works and objects for connoisseurs and experienced collectors, as well as a variety of art-related services such as interior design, restoration, and issuance of expert opinions and certifications.


The gallery has played a fundamental role in the formation of important collections of Mexican art, advising collectors on the selection, valuation, acquisition, and conservation of works, as well as on the assembly and maintenance of the same.
