In celebration of the 80 anniversary of the National Bank of Chile, the institution published a book that presents a significant part of the painting collection the bank has been acumulating since its creation in 1925. The collection comprises mainly works of the 19th and 20th centuries, coming to a halt in the 1940's, coeval with the Generation of the 40's, represented by the works of Carlos Pedraza, Fernando Morales Jordán who together with others continued the views and techniques of the French Impressionists painters. The collection only timidly insinuates the following years with some names such as: Nemesio Antúnez, Roser Bru, Gracia Barrios, Patricia Israel or Mario Toral. ENGLISH ANS SPANISH TEXT.
