Photographer's Note

Is accessible from both ends of the Hall of Bustos, occupying the entire front of the Theater Colón fron, with an area of 442 square meters.

There are usually carried out lectures, concerts and exhibitions of scenery, costumes and photography.

Its enormous columns and mirrors what resemble the great halls of the palace of Versailles or Schoenbrunn.
Huge columns of the Golden Hall are carved with a profusion of details in gold. The furnishings are French, with luxurious marquetry work. Couches and chairs are upholstered in pale pink.

At the head of the Golden Room, there are two splendid achievements of soft colors, where they recreated scenes that evoke episodes of history and poetry of classical Greece. The first represents Homer reciting the Iliad, the second of Sapho tribute to the god Apollo. The scenes have been produced with a great theatrical sense and are cleverly arranged. The characters are naturalness in the poses on funds of excellent architectural perspective, and transparency gives them a magical effect.
