A few photos of El Museo Carlos Dreyer in Puno

Carlos Dreyer Spohr was a painter and collector from Germany that lived in Puno during more 30 years, in early XX century. He was interested in peruvian ancient cultures. He made paintings in oil, aquarelle, pencil and charcoal, and he was influenced by indigenous current. His paints are about landscapes, customs and daily live in the highlands.

In the museum you are allowed to take photos just in the first floor.

The exhibit includes photos, paintings, Carlos' belongings and objects of the Moche, Nazca, Chimú, Chancay and Paracas culture. It is a really interesting and nice place. That days, a group of japanese people were visiting too.

This is his typewriter:

"German typewriter, 1910".

The photos are from Puno city in early XX century.
