to May 24 | PAINTING EXHIBIT | Paula Rego and Josefa de Óbidos: religious art in the feminine | 2,5-5€

May 14, 2021 - May 24, 2021


Here’s some of what organizers Casa das Histórias say about this four-centuries-spanning exhibit of works by two local female painters:
“In the female artistic genealogy and in the respective historiographic analysis of Portuguese art, two names stand out for almost three centuries: Josefa de Ayala (1630-1684) and Paula Rego (born 1935). Bringing to this monographic museum two exhibitions by two women artists, with a common title, but admittedly differentiated in the space – the exhibition of works by Paula Rego takes place in seven contiguous rooms and that of Josefa in the room dedicated to temporary exhibitions – is justified, at the outset, by the way both are distinguished, in their different creative periods, by the originality of their work that surpasses the dominant academisms in their times, by the intense sensualist charge that both imprint on painting, and also by the imaginative capacity of reconfiguration of religious themes, using an original speech, structured and delivered in the feminine…”

Opening hours:
Tuesday to Friday: 10am/6pm.
Saturday to Sunday:10am to 1pm / 2pm to 6pm.

General Public: 5€.
