to Dec 31 | ART EXHIBIT | Bordalo at the Table | 3€

It’s no secret that Portuguese legend Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro was kind of a foodie. Here’s what the organizers of this gluttonous exhibit at the museum that holds his name add:
“His multifaceted work mirrors his taste for sitting at the table to enjoy fine gastronomy. But it also provides a record of diet, cookery, eating spaces, and table etiquette from the last quarter of the 19th century to the start of the 20th century. Like authors of the time, Eça de Queiroz, Ramalho Ortigão, and Fialho de Almeida (the last two, his literary collaborators), the artist portrayed Portuguese society at the table, without excluding himself. The exhibition Bordalo À Mesa, organized by Pedro Bebiano Braga, invites you to a varied tasting of this delicious aspect of Bordalo’s work.”

Tue-Sun, 10h-18h.
Closed on Mondays (and May 1, Dec. 25, and Jan. 1).

Show up until Dec. 31.

ENTRY: 3€.
