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).
