Victoria Ocampo (1890 - 1979)
The great patron of the arts promoted the artistic and literary development of the country and was also a talented essayist and translator.
She had many critics who saw her as a wealthy and extravagant woman who put on airs and pretended to be an intellectual and a writer. They accused her project of being an attempt to change our culture into a more “European” one. Despite these opinions, this intrepid lady went beyond the limits of her class and the patriarchal hegemony of the time.
Her passionate devotion can still be seen in her cultural legacy and can still be heard in the voice she justly gave to herself in Argentine history.
