The Museum of Fine Arts in Badajoz
Is characterised, at least, by the following peculiarities, which constitute the personality of this museum and its identity.
The painting depicting regional customs; that which criticises society and, really, the autochthonous nature of many of the works define greatly the personality of the museum. It houses a lot of works by foreign and national painters, specially from Extremadura, who were awarded prizes in National and Foreign Exhibitions. This is an aspect of great interest for the study and knowledge of these artistic expressions in the 19th and 20th century.
