Sailor, mathematician, linguist, writer, crackpot (he claimed to exist in his own personal time zone), friend of Jorge Luis Borges and, most importantly, painter, Xul Solar (1887-1963) was a one-off. This museum—an award-winning purpose-built construction—exhibits many of his best-known paintings, in which contorted humanoids and fabulous creatures coexist with strange machines, creating a genre that might fairly be described as Paul Klee meets steampunk.
